The Azores are known internationally as choice destination for certain groups of bird species
observation. Come to our island and get to know the starlet of Santa Maria (Regulus regulus sanctae mariae), single species in the world. This species is the smallest European bird with about 5 grams and about 9 cm, an aspect “plump” short tail with a crown of feathers on top of the yellow-orange coloring head. Attracts attention with its fairly acute appeals, and uninterrupted activity, continually wagging the wings in search of food.
