The Hummingbird is of the Green Violetear (Colibri thalassinus) variety, the Robin is of the European variety (Erithacus rubecula), and the Blue Jay (Cyanocitta cristata) is native to North America. What’s cool about this set is that the name plates for each of the birds have their Latin names as well as the unique stands they sit on.
