Admirable Hummingbird (Eugenes spectabilis)

The Admirable Hummingbird or Talamanca hummingbird (Eugenes spectabilis) is a large hummingbird. Some taxonomic authorities, such as the International Ornithological Committee, split the magnificent hummingbird into two species, in which case the nominate fulgens is renamed Rivoli’s hummingbird, and spectabilis is named the admirable hummingbird. Other taxonomic authorities have not recognized the split. The admirable hummingbird’s range is Costa Rica to Panama. Member of the Trochilidae – Hummingbirds Family.

Today is the beginning of a new series for Lee’s Birdwatching Adventures. A good friend of mine, Rhonda Sawtelle, (Create a Positive Day), has been posting every day on her Facebook a different attribute of our Lord God. She has been going through them alphabetically. What if each day, we had a different attribute and a bird that starts with that same letter. My challenge is to try to at least get through the alphabet at least once. Maybe several rounds. Stay tuned!
