A male marvelous spatuletail perches in a lek (an assembly area where animals carry on display and courtship behavior) near Pomacoches in northern Peru. The species gets its name from the male’s two longest tail feathers, which can be controlled independently and play a major role in the hummingbird’s courtship displays. The spatuletail is considered by many to be the world’s most spectacular hummingbird, but it is also one of the rarest. Confined to a small region in northern Peru, only 500-800 marvelous spatuletails are estimated to remain.
