Colombia | Rare hummingbird, not seen since 2010, spotted in mountains

A rare hummingbird has been rediscovered by a birdwatcher in Colombia after going missing for more than a decade.


The Santa Marta sabrewing, a large hummingbird only found in Colombia’s Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountains, was last seen in 2010 and scientists feared the species might be extinct as the tropical forests it inhabited have largely been cleared for agriculture.
