For the first time ever, the unusual courtship ritual of the Marvelous Spatuletail hummingbird has been caught on video.
Watch as the male hummingbird uses his long, spoon-shaped tail feathers to attract females. To complete for their attention, he’ll spin the feathers around at high speed and even attack other males.
The Marvelous Spatuletail is a rare and endangered hummingbird that lives in a tiny part of northern Peru. This video was captured by filmmaker Greg Homel and provided to Boyslife.org by the American Bird Conservancy. Click here to learn more.
