After processing for data, humming birds will occasionally need a helping dose of sugar water to help sustain their extremely high metabolic rates that enables their characteristic flight. When holding an individual,  you can feeling the bird vibrating as if it were cold but in fact it is their heart beating, preparing for flight.
