Of the over 10,000 species of birds, there is only ONE that can hover and fly backwards for extended periods of time. If that’s not enough to set the HUMMINGBIRD apart, these tiny feathered friends, weighing less than a buffalo nickel, migrate up to 2,000 miles each year, some from as far as Wisconsin to Mexico and back.
An estimated 200,000 novelists will sit down at their keyboards today. I wonder how many will find a way to fly backwards . . . to be unique.
