The base of the beak does not have the bristles typical of most birds, and these birds have a bifurcated tongue. The wings of hummingbirds, the smallest birds in the world, are sharp, represented by 9-10 fly feathers and 6 short small ones, which are almost completely hidden under the covering feathers. The legs of birds are weak, very small, with long claws. Since they are unsuitable for walking, most of the time hummingbird’s feet are in the air.
