The Red-billed Streamertail

The Red-billed Streamertail (Trochilus polytmus), also known as the Doctor Bird, is indigenous to Jamaica, where it is the most abundant and widespread member of the hummingbird family. While most authorities now consider it a separate species, some (including the American Ornithologists' Union) continue to consider it conspecific with the Black-billed Streamertail. The Red-billed Streamertail is the national bird of Jamaica.
