Ouch... They cannot make a hummingbird figurine and the put the name of the first hummingbird species that they think on, despite being completely different from that figurine! Swallow-tailed hummingbirds have a black bill and of course, a very deeply forked tail. This could pass maybe by a Broad-billed hummingbird (Cynanthus latirostris) with a too long bill, but never could pass by a swallow-tailed...

I'm really not a fan of this. It looks really cheaply painted.
Don't I take long uploading photos!
