Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The number  of cells in a hummingbird = 10 ^ 12 cells/hummingbird ( you forgot to include that the hummingbird weighs  is 10 ^-2 kg  )  .


The  Number of cells in a human = 10^ 16 cells/person( You also forgot to include that they weigh 10 ^-15). 


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
