Is this hummingbird “snoring”?

Hummingbirds are always moving, lightning fast. So why does this little gal seem to be catching some Z’s? Ornithologists seem to think it’s a way of warming the body up after long period of “torpor” or inactivity, and the “snoring” is way of speeding up that process through opening up airways. It may look cute, but it’s just science.
