Hummingbirds pretty much are the king of all fliers. The reason for this is, unlike other birds, is that they flap their wings in figure-eights!!! This is what gives them their amazing maneuverability.
When they want to go up, they push harder on the downward stroke. For down, harder on the upward stroke, etc. They can even hover while they are feeding!
This is one beautiful (and cool) little bird.
