Hummingbirds Perch a Great Deal

Many people have the mistaken idea that hummingbirds are in contant and prepetual motion.  I must admit that I too had that mistaken idea before I started researching hummingbirds.  As astonishing as this may sound, I have since discovered that hummingbirds actually spend about 80 percent of the time perched.  A hummingbird will use many unusual things as a perch including the following:  a limb, TV antennas, or even a clothesline.  The important thing is that it must provide the hummingbirds with a good view of the the surronding area which will allow the birds to survey the territory.
