Swallow-Tailed Hummingbird

Scientific Name: Eupetomena macroura

Class: Aves

Habitat: Brazil

The swallow-tailed hummingbird lives in east and central South America. It prefers semi-open areas, sparse woodland, coastal regions, and gardens, but will avoid dense rainforest. It has a long forked tail that comprises half of the bird’s 16 cm length.

The swallow-tailed hummingbird has plumage that is a mixture of green, blue, and purple, and its wings flap at approximately 20 beats per second, allowing it to hover while feeding on flower nectar. They are aggressive towards other birds and will `dive-bomb’ or pester birds as large as hawks!
