The Swallow-tailed Hummingbird (Eupetomena macroura) Its common name and specific epithet (which means "large-tailed") both refer to the long, deeply forked, somewhat swallow-like tail. Found in parts of SA, in semi-open habitat; even gardens and parks within major cities like Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. the Swallow-tailed Hummingbird is most common among savanna-like vegetation.
