The Hummingbird Training Center

Meet Biologist Doug Altshuler. He’s a hummingbird fan and has created a “hummingbird training center” in his lab to test their agility, as well as to record their twists and turns with multiple slow motion cameras. The secret to their talents: hovering… which ties into that whole flying backwards and upside down while turning on a dime thing that they do. #incredible

This clip is from “Hummingbirds: Magic in the Air.” You can watch the entire documentary on We also have a few more slow motion hummingbirds in the archives.
