Hummingbirds are a beautiful and a diverse group, featuring all colors and forms. Small temperature changes can have a huge effect on their energy consumption, and as they are already living on the brink, rising temperatures due to climate change could have a huge impact on these important pollinators. The situation is even more tense for hummingbirds living in the mountains, as these habitats are rapidly decreasing and only very slowly growing in new areas such as the Paramos in Colombia, home to the buffy helmetcrest (second bird from the left). This species is endemic to a tiny volcanic area in the Andes. With all my heart, I wish that these very special birds will also delight future generations. In my composition, the grey boxes remind of museum exhibitions of stuffed birds.
