Many people have never seen a hummingbird sit still for more than a few moments, let alone asleep. But just like every other creature, they still must get some rest.
In the video above, a female amethyst-throated sunangel is shown at a research facility in Peru. While it appears to be snoring, it’s not.
According to YouTuber forrestertr7, the little bird is perched in a machine that tests oxygen intake. “I know it’s not actually snoring, it just kinda sounds like it,” forrestertr7 admits.
Some hummingbirds have even been known to sleep upside down.
