GLITTERING STARFRONTLET

glittering starfrontlet

A hummingbird, 14cm. Black and shocking metallic green. About 250 remain in a 25 sq km area of high mountain dwarf cloud forest and scrubland in north western Colombia. Numbers currently stable, but their tiny home range in the mountains has rich metal ore deposits and is threatened with immanent destruction for mining which would wipe them out.
