PRESS RELEASE

   

The first sighting of the season of the majestic Ruby Topaz Hummingbird was made at Adventure Eco Villas and Adventure Farm and Nature Reserve in Tobago. The Ruby Topaz Hummingbird which is considered the most beautiful hummingbird in the world arrived at 4.10 pm on the 23rd November, 2017. The first male arrived from South America and more arrivals can be expected over the next few days.

They can be viewed at our Covered Hummingbird and Bird Observatory. This is a spectacle that every visitor to Tobago should not miss. The Ruby Topaz Hummingbird, Chrysolampis mosquitus, is considered as one of the most spectacular and colorful hummingbirds and comes to the Romantic island of Tobago from South America to nest and will return south around the second week of August with its siblings. Maybe this little rhyme says it all:

They come to this Isle of Tobago And taste of its joys for themselves.

So if you say that you’ve been to Tobago You will always be blessed by these colorful treasures.
