How considerably do you know about hummingbirds? Here are a couple of information that may surprise you about this incredible small bird.

  • Hummingbirds are the smallest migrating bird except they do not migrate in flocks like other species. Some even travel alone for up to 500 miles at a time.
  • Hummingbirds are the only birds that can fly backwards.
  • The name, hummingbird, comes from the humming noise their wings make as they beat so speedy.
  • Hummingbirds have no sense of smell. While they cannot sniff out feeders, they do have great colour vision.

As for drawing a hummingbird, this 1 is fairly effortless as the body wings and tail are all kept to fairly basic shapes. The entertaining comes when it is time to colour in the neck and lovely shiny outer coat.

If you assume you have to have added fancy supplies to make some incredibly vibrant hummingbird colors, guess once more. You can normally just use crayons to colour (like a dark green more than a light green) to add some added visual TEXTURE, (1 of the Elements of Art!). It’s subtle, but absolutely there as the crayons will in no way completely mix like oil pastels. You can even add some red colour more than the pink to make the flower appear added vibrant.
