Researchers in Canada figured out how hummingbirds avoid high-speed collisions.By Ryan Biek | July 19, 2016
When was the last time you saw a hummingbird crash?
These little birds can fly at over 30 miles per hour and stop in an instant. So the question is, how does the way they see help them avoid high-speed collisions?
Researchers in Canada already knew coming into their study on this topic that bees evaluate distance based on how long something takes to pass their visual field.
