Red-billed Streamertail Hummingbird

Paul and I enjoyed our trip to Rocklands Bird Sanctuary in Anchovy, Jamaica. It was my favorite part of the whole cruise. The red-billed streamertail hummingbird is Jamaica's national bird.

We were given little bottles of sugar water and the hummingbirds were accustomed to the bottles and would feed from them. This red-billed streamer tail hummingbird landed on my husband’s finger to feed.
I enjoyed feeding them too!


I took this video of the hummingbird feeding. The speed of the video was slow as the lighting was dark, but I love watching its wings in slow motion.
