Wire-crested Thorntail (Discosura popelairii)
…a  rare and striking species of hummingbird which occurs in Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru. Where it inhabits solely inhabits lowland forests, and is not tolerant of secondary habitats. Like most striking plumaged birds wire-crested thorntails are sexually dimorphic with lacking the long “wire” crests and “thorn” tails of males. In typical humming bird fashion wire-crested thorntails feed on nectar from flowers, but will occasionally take insects as well. 
Currently Discosura popelairii is listed as near threatened by the IUCN, as it faces accelerating threats from deforestation in the Amazon Basin.

In honor of Neverender, I have decided to do another give away. You have today, September 5th, until October 7th to reblog and like as much as you’d like. The rules are simple:
-Reblog and like as much as you want.
-You DON’T have to follow me to be able to win. This is just to give away stuff.
-I will use a randomized generator to pick the winner.
-There will only be ONE winner.
-I will ship to Canada if needed but I would prefer if you’re in the US. 
-That’s pretty much it!
The winner will receive the choice of one shirt from the Coheed and Cambria store and a surprise gift form Neverender!  
So get to it and reblog! Good luck!
Go here to find out to get 5 extra entries!

TOMORROW
