The song of the hummingbird

The hummingbird, family Trochilidae, it is a small bird, in fact the smallest bird in the world, mostly solitary and diurnal, which seeks the company of its fellows only at the moment of reproduction. In fact, during the mating season, the male attracts the female with the emission of a series of short and acute notes.
They are territorial animals and communicate with each other remotely through sounds. In fact, if a male ends up in the territory of another male, he is first sensed by the emission of a very long and acute note which is repeated, gradually increasing in intensity and volume and can end up, if not listened to, in a real fight. .
Given the rapidity of their wing flapping (80 beats per second) they generate a sound that resembles the buzzing of an insect: for this reason they are called fly birds.
