Species Description
The White-Necked Jacobin (also called the Great Jacobin or Collared Hummingbird) is a large hummingbird (about 12 inches long) with ranges from Mexico south to Peru, Bolivia and Brazil. It is a widespread inhabitant of forests, preferring to dwell in clearings or edges of forests and woodland in the humid lowlands. The White-Necked Jacobin is found mostly in high perches in the canopy; it rarely travels down to the floor, save for trips to feeders. It eats mostly nectar from flowering trees, but will occasionally eat insects, which it catches either by hawking or by hovering in front of a swarm and picking them off.
