Marvelous Spatuletail

The Marvelous Spatuletail is perhaps the world’s most spectacular hummingbird. It is endangered, and occurs only in a tiny part of northern Peru. American Bird Conservancy and its Peruvian partner group ECOAN are creating a community nature reserve, planting thousands of native hummingbird flowers, and developing a sustainable eco-tourism program.


The spatuletail’s survival depends on the success of these efforts.
