A beautiful bird that belongs to the hummingbird family. It is found only in the mountains of Ecuador and Peru, where it lives in a special kind of forest with small trees and shrubs. It is also called the “elfin-forest king.” The royal sunangel is very small and light, with a short, black bill and a long, forked tail. They also like to drink nectar from flowers and eat insects using it’s long beaks.
The royal sunangel is not afraid of cold weather. It has adapted to survive in high altitudes where temperatures can be chilly. Its feathers provide insulation, keeping it warm and cozy even in the mountain air. It’s like wearing a natural winter coat!
