If you like watching elite athletes as much as I do, you will surely want to catch PBS’ “Hummingbirds: Magic in the Air” on Sunday, January 10, at 8:00 PM (EST).

Did you know that hummingbirds are the smallest warm-blooded creatures on this planet? They are also the fastest.

But you’ll discover these and other astonishing hummingbird facts on Sunday.
