More About Super Hummingbirds
Enter the fast-paced world of hummingbirds as never before with high speed camerawork and breakthrough new science. Possessing natural-born super powers, speed is their middle name and they can fly backwards, upside-down and even float in mid-air. While their lives move faster than our eyes can see, now, for the first time, you can see them mate, lay eggs, fight and raise families in intimate detail. They are great athletes, tender mothers, brave in combat and up for any challenge. They are super hummingbirds, the smallest, most brilliant birds on earth. Super Hummingbirds is production of NATURE on PBS.
