We live in Quito, Ecuador. Our family is in love with hummingbirds. My son took a photo of a very small hummingbird, no more than one inch long on one of his feeders, which would be about the size of a Bee-hummingbird, but we’re not in Cuba, so it can’t be.
I would like to send the picture to somebody that may be able to identify the bird, so it would be appreciated if you can guide me to whom, or what organization. I can address it to.
