White-tipped Sicklebill

Posted on Apr 1, 2016

A White-tipped Sicklebill (Eutoxeres aquila) with RTPI Affiliate Sean Graesser demonstrating their co-evolution with their primary feeding flower Centropogon granulosa. The hummingbirds get to enjoy the nectar of the flower while serving its purpose as a pollinator for these plants. Nature is staggeringly awesome!
