Re: How Hummingbirds Hover...

Interesting. Today I observed  a Red-Tailed Hawk hovering in a stiff breeze. 
The Rough-Legged Hawk is well  known for this, but, to my mind, nothing 
matches Falco spaverius, the American  Kestrel ( should be called the Sparrow 
IMHO ) for hovering dead still in  turbulent and extremely gusty wind 
conditions. Hummingbird, Schmumingbird. DV
