Reference material for the female racket-tail hummingbird doesn’t show a racket ‘tail,’ and the male doesn’t have the white breast… Thanks in advance for a proper ID! When illustrated reference books seem lacking for details, I often check Nick Athanas’ Antpitta site.. Check out his magnificent portraits of Neotropical birds. (Antpitta.com – Booted Racket-tailed Hummingbird)
While updating the bird list for the property, I was pleased to count over 90 species of birds – and the ones that live on the other 95 hectares are still unrecorded!
Calling all birders – can you help with identification for any of these UFBS – Unidentified Flying Birds? I will be offline until next week but look forward to your feedback.
Let’s look at those birds!
