Why a humming bird?
People who haven’t worked with us before are keen to understand the values at the heart of our company and why we chose to represent them in a humming bird. Although it isn’t a native bird of New Zealand, the humming bird reflects the understanding we have of our multi-cultural society as it is well-known and respected for being a swift, hard working & adaptable bird that is the only one of its kind.
Some interesting facts about humming birds
Humming birds are adaptable – they are able to hover, and are the only bird species to fly upside-down. During hibernation they are able to lower their heart-rate to 1/15th of normal rate, increasing their ability to remain strong and survive through harsh conditions – just like our homes!
Humming birds are incredibly smart – in fact they have the largest brain in the bird world in proportion to body size.
Humming birds are swift – able to travel great distances tirelessly because of their unique design.
They are very careful about where they will build their nests, choosing the perfect location and ensuring they have adequate supplies available before they start.
They are excellent planners as nest builders and ensure they have chosen the right spot as well as positioning the nest to withstand storms.
They are clear and make a unique sound during flight – ensuring good communication with others.
The female will test the strength of a prospective nest site by repeatedly landing on it and checking whether the place leaves her with shelter from wind, rain and sun – ensuring the perfect environment in which to raise her family.
They are also one of the fastest birds to build a solid nest – working tirelessly for about 4hrs per day over 5-7 days and creating the strongest and most comfortable nest available during this time.
Often humming bird nests are so strong that they are able to re-use them again the following year (just like our homes!)
