Jamaican Black-Billed Streamertail

Also called the Jamaican streamertail, the black-billed streamertail (Trochilus scitulus) is named for its long, thin tail feathers that stretch for several inches behind its small, stocky body. Found wild only in Jamaica, this is a popular hummingbird for many birders to try to see when they visit Caribbean waters.
