is the most versatile flying machine, with the ability to rotate in
one place, hover, and climb, all at a moments notice.
The main rotor controls the height coupled with the tail rotor controlling
the rotation, added together, the two circles these blades make are
quite similar to the figure eight control a hummingbird uses.
Rufous Hummingbird, like other hummingbirds, has the ability to hover
in one place or even fly backwards. It does this by rotating its wings
in a figure 8.
This bird is the most maneuverable hummingbird. Because of this, it
usually maintains control over food sources like birdfeeders or flowers
as it can get there before less maneuverable hummingbirds.
Its migration route is also far longer than other hummingbirds.
