Hummingbird Wing Beats
How fast can a Hummingbirds wings beat and are they too
weak to walk?
Up to 80 times per second for some of the smaller species; they can grip
with their feet to perch, presumably they could walk if they needed to but I
doubt they would be on the ground intentionally since they feed on the fly.
