Dear Mom Hummingbirds

Does the Hummingbird Have a Liver?

Does a hummingbird have a liver? If so, what is its purpose? These are the kinds of unique and different questions that my mom would have wanted answered if she were still alive today. So, for my mom and all others with an unusual sense of curiosity, this post will answer these questions.

Yes, a hummingbird does indeed have a liver. This is where fats are stored within the hummingbird’s body for quick release. These fats help provide the hummingbird with energy during their migratory journey as well as helping to aide in the hummingbird’s day- to-day survival.
