RECENT studies on the metabolism of hummingbirds (Lasiewski, 1963) have revealed that, although the energetic cost of small size in hummingbirds is high, it is not as high as had been previously reported. These studies outlined the responses of the metabolism of torpid, resting, active, and flying hummingbirds to temperature. The results showed that hummingbirds are not "indifferent" homeotherms, as suggested by Pearson (1960), but have the ability to maintain homeothermy all night over a wide… Expand
