Food Preferences of the Lucifer Hummingbird

The Lucifer Hummingbird requires a constant energy source (nectar) and protein source (insects). The Lucifer hummingbird does like to eat insects more than most hummingbird varieties, preferring smaller insects and spiders.

The very high metabolism of the Lucifer hummingbird is due to the incredible speed with which it flaps its wings, continuously burning the food it has consumed for fuel.

After feeding on nectar of flowers, the Lucifer hummingbird carries pollen to other flowers.
