Escuela Bella Vista, Shining-green hummingbird (Lepidopyga goudoti)
This tiny emerald machine literally dropped out of the sky for lack of enough sugars Well done to the 7th grade girls who found him at the lunch tables (Greta Mici and friends). It took about 20 min of passion fruit juice and love, before he scratched himself (like a green dog with a sword) and zoomed off to be what he was meant to be. What a wonderful creature.
Gotta love Venezuela. Maybe we need to put out hummingbird feeders, so that we keep our shiniest inhabitants happy at EBV.
