SANTA MARTA COLOMBIA
The Hummingbirds Of
🇨🇴
,
With a heart that beats over 1,300 X per minute
and wings that flap over 80 X per minute,
humming birds metabolize food fast. They can
eat as much as 8 times their body weight in a
single day
,
The unique climate and geographic
location of the Santa Marta Mtns is
home to the highest concentration of
bird species on the planet
,
With year round flower blooms, nectar
and pollination are in constant flourish

Competition for nectar is always
a contentious battle

,
A Santa Marta Woodstar, this bird is
nearly the size of a large bumble bee and
found only in Colombia 🇨🇴
,
Rain is a nearly a daily occurrence in the
tropical forests of Santa Marta
,
Filming in the rain was common
,
,
Couldn’t have done any of this without
friends Gregg Bleakney, Diego
Calderón, Julian Manrique, Fedrico
Pardo & José Casteano 🙏🏻
