Dear Mom

What is the Hummingbird’s Helmet?

Interesting facts or information about hummingbirds makes me think of you mom.  Today’s post is no different.  Did you know that some species of hummingbirds have what is known as a helmet?  Well, it’s true they do.  It is only found on certain species of hummingbirds though.  Why is this?  I don’t know the answer to this question.

So, what is the helmet on a hummingbird?  The helmet is a bright-colored area located on the forehead and crown of some hummingbirds, but not all hummingbird species have this.
