Sheikh Sauds Hummingbirds

These hummingbirds formed part of the collection of Sheikh Saud Al-Thani once Minister for Art and Culture for the nation of Qatar. He had a great interest in natural history and formed a wonderful exhibition in Qatar titled 'Lost Worlds' that received much critical acclaim. After the exhibition he gave this collection of hummingbirds to a friend as a reward for all the help he had given. The hummingbird collection is a remarkable compilation and an assembly of specimens like this could never be repeated.
