Great Job on the article!
I just have one question. Why are hummingbirds nature's kamikazes (no "e" in Kamikaze)?

As I understand it, the modern definition and the one that most people are familiar with, is a pilot on a suicide mission.
The Japanse word itself means "divine wind". That seems more appropriate for a hummingbird!

I just wonder what you intended, perhaps your creative title could use some justification in the body of the article.

Should be no 'a'.

Oh, your right. For some reason I saw that extra "a" and my brain processed it as an "e".
