More information about Final Jeopardy:

Hummingbirds, members of the family Trochilidae, are among the smallest birds. They’re called hummingbirds in English due to the sound that their wings make when they beat; it’s a frequency audible to humans.

Due to the fact that they consume so much energy in their flying, they need to constantly visit flowers, hence the “flower-kisser” translation from Portuguese. The Old Farmer’s Almanac estimates that they visit over a thousand flowers a day.

  1. I got this one right away. I guess at least 2/3, 3/3, or however many we have left/however many we have left.

  2. “Nicht schlecht, Herr Specht”. It rhymes and means ” Not bad Mr. Woodpecker” Thought I throw that in, since Rob is on a roll and the category was about birds……:):)
