It may surprise you to know that some people, even some adults, believe that hummingbird do not have feet. This is not true! Hummingbirds do have feet, but they are very poorly developed and therefore the hummingbird can barely walk at all, just a few inches. The feet of the hummingbird are used for preening, perching and scratching rather then walking. The hummingbird is most comfortable when in flight.
