    Dear Ms. Donnelly,

    I sent in my responce before, but didn't send in the entire form, I'm
    sorry. Here is the completed answer.

    1. 1.6 cal. per ounce is what a hummingbird needs per day.
    2. My weight in ounces is 2080 ounces
    3. 33.280 calories per day is what I would need if I ate as a
    4. One serveing of my fav. food (which is Rice Crispie Treats) has 90
    calories. I would need 18.02 lbs per day of my favorite food.
    5. 1.13 lbs per hour of my favorite food is what I would need to eat to
    eat as much as a hummingbird.

    This would definitely NOT be my favorite food anymore, if I needed to
    eat that much of it everyday.
