Mystery Rogitama Hummingbird Captured
Yesterday I posted a blog about the mystery hummingbird located in Rogitama, Colombia. I am pleased to share some photographs of the bird that was captured by a team of Colombian ornithologists for DNA analysis. Many thanks to Roberto Chavarro, owner of Rogitama Private Nature Reserve, for keeping us updated on the progress of this important project.
