This handcoloured steel engraving by William Lizars showcases the exquisite beauty of the White-tailed sabrewing, also known as Campylopterus ensipennis. The intricate details and vibrant colors bring this stunning hummingbird to life, making it a true masterpiece. The White-tailed sabrewing is a small bird with iridescent green feathers that shimmer in the light. Its most distinctive feature is its long, slender bill which resembles a saber or sword, hence its name. This enchanting creature is often found in Central and South America, where it flits gracefully from flower to flower, sipping nectar with its delicate tongue. In this illustration from Sir William Jardine's Naturalists Library: Ornithology: Hummingbirds, every feather seems meticulously rendered by Lizars' skilled hand. The artist's attention to detail captures not only the bird's physical attributes but also its spirit and grace.

This print is more than just an artistic representation; it serves as an educational tool for ornithologists and enthusiasts alike. It allows us to study and appreciate the intricate features of this remarkable species while fostering a deeper understanding of our natural world.
