Species of the Day: White-tipped sicklebill!

Species of the day: White-tipped sickle bill! This is one of my favorite species. It is quite specialized (its “sickle” bill allows it to get into very curved flowers). As a result, it needs to move a long way to find the food that it needs. One of our largest hummingbirds (~11 g), it is a bit like watching a fighter jet mixed with a muppet move through the jungle.
