Cuban doves and smallest hummingbird


This video says about itself:

Zapata Wren – Ferminia cerverai

A bird singing. Zapata Peninsula, Cuba (Monotypic species).

Recorded 1 August 2004.

15 March 2017, at the Zapata peninsula; the day after 14 March, the day I had seen the Zapata wren; we went to a Zapata peninsula forest edge where many doves were present.

Then, we went to see the world’s smallest bird, the bee hummingbird, again.

Cuban emerald hummingbirds were present too.

A northern mockingbird sang from the top of an electricity pole.

We continued our journey to Havana.

So, stay tuned!
