Why Hummingbird you ask?
Michael was a founding member of Elk Street Management, a real estate developer based in Philadelphia. The partners loved the idea of naming each project after an animal and tried find some historical significance tying that location to an animal.
One building was located on Leopard Street, so they Leopard in the LLC name.
Another development site the Wolf family owned and operated a few businesses there, so that entities nick name was Wolf.
Elk Street was taken from an old historical archived map that showed that name on a street behind on of the buildings.
As for Hummingbird, we wanted something fresh.
We wanted an animal to reflect our approach: speed and quick action just like the old fable:
There is a Quechan fable about a hummingbird named Dukdukdiya. During a fierce forest fire, while all other animals stood in stunned fear, Dukdukdiya alone took action by repeatedly carrying a single drop of water in her beak to the flames. When asked why she bothered with such paltry efforts, she replied that she was simply doing everything in her power to stop the fire.
