... aerodynamically active upstroke of hummingbirds lead to different patterns, we flew rufous hummingbirds ( Selasphorus rufus , 3 g body mass, 42 Hz wingbeat frequency) in a variable-speed wind tunnel (0–10 m s −1 ). We measured neuromuscular activity in the pectoralis (PECT) and supracoracoideus (SUPRA) muscles...

... hypothesized that other wing kinematics besides stroke-plane angle would vary in hummingbirds. To test this, we used synchronized high-speed (500 Hz) video cameras and measured the three-dimensional wing and body kinematics of rufous hummingbirds ( Selasphorus rufus , 3 g, N =5) as they flew at velocities of 0...
