In February 2013 a group of birdwatchers spotted the very rare Copper-Tailed Hummingbird during a bird watching excursion at Kabalebo Nature Resort.

This bird lives at the Tupuis (Table-top Mountain) in Venzuela and Brasil. In 1972 this rare bird was first spotted in Suriname in Sipaliwiny by Gerlof Mees. Since then the bird has only been spotted about 4 times up till 2009.

The copper-tailed hummingbird is formerly known as the Green-bellied Hummingbird. Both names sums up it's main characteristic's; a green belly and copper colored tail.

In 2009 the bird was also spotted in French Guyana for the first time. The copper-tailed hummingbird is a species of hummingbird in the Trochilidae family. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical moist forests and heavily degraded former forest.

The Kabalebo Bird guide, Mrs. Armida spotted this bird, in his nest, on an excursion at Kabalebo. The bird watchers on this excursion were astonished to see the bird at the Resort, since the area is not their natural habitat. However the images show the bird is enjoying the surroundings quite well and might appear during your next visit to the resort.
