Hummingbird - Fly some fun with this colorful bird kite.
Our flying birds go together quickly and easily. And they fly on the lightest breezes. Use one to decorate the sky or brighten up a kid’s room. For extra fun, loft a flock!
Each bird kite is based on a flying creature well known in North America. Designed by kite artist Robert Brasington, they each hold the promise of short-term fun and long-term performance. To assemble, just pop the extended end of each wing rod into the white pocket on the opposite side of the kite. Attach your flying line to the bridle loop and send it soaring.
In flight, the wings will flex back. For changing winds, you can slide the bridle loop higher or lower for improved performance.
The Lucifer Hummingbird is a medium-sized green hummingbird with long decurved bill, small wings and white streak behind eye. The Lucifer is distributed to deserts and arid areas in the southwestern United States. In Latin, Lucifer means "light-bearing" and was applied in Old English to the morning star. Thus, when William Swainson named this bird in 1827 he might have been thinking of the luminous glow of its colors.
