Spectacular hummingbird video

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 by the American Bird Conservancy. Click here to learn more.
