There are some species of bird that actually do pollinate plants. According to pmac.net there are about 1,500 species of birds and mammals that are pollinators. The bird most known for pollination is the hummingbird. Also perching birds account for a great deal of pollination in North America.
There are birds that contribute to nature by pollinating. While watching the documentary Vanishing of the Bees, I learned the obvious that there were also birds who pollinated fruits and plants/ The bird listed in the documentary was the adorable hummingbird. They are small and are only found in the Americas. These birds are able to flap their wings 80 times per second. They are particularly fond of shrimp plants, verbenas, bee balm, honeysuckles, fuchsias, hibiscus, and bromeliads.
Another pollinating bird is the Sunbirds, Spiderhunters, and Honeyeaters. Birds are not know for pollinating crops that grow food. These birds are still important. These birds still pollinate and if it were not for them then many plants would be extinct.
