Apodiformes are one of the most diverse orders of migratory birds on Earth. There are almost 450 species so far identified within three living familes: swifts, tree swifts and hummingbirds. All the birds in this order have very short legs and tiny feet that are only good for perching. Long wings containing short bones allow for some spectacular flying and hovering.
Scientific name: Apodiformes
