Suriname, six new bird species found

This 2013 video says about itself:

Small birds in Suriname, Amazonia. This is a collection of footage of “small” birds in our part of Suriname (South America). 99% of the footage has been made in our own yard. I excluded the hummingbirds, parrots/parrakeets, birds of prey, and pterodactylae, because I want to make separate video’s about them. Hope you’ll enjoy it! Subscribe if you like it.

Two are swifts: white-chinned swift and white-tipped swift.

The velvet browed brilliant is a hummingbird.

The tepui greenlet is a songbird.
