A new species of hummingbird has been discovered in Columbia! The Gorgeted Puffleg Eriocnemis isabellae is already considered endangered, mostly because of slash-and-burn coca farmers displaced by the U.S. sponsored coca eradication efforts in other parts of Columbia. For more information about hummingbirds in Columbia (the birdiest country in the world) visit the Columbian Hummingbird Conservancy.
