Columbia has the greatest diversity of birds in the world.   Pictured above is one of them: a Red-headed Barbet (Eubucco bourcierii), photographed by Luis Robayo in a rural area of Cali, Columbia.   Columbia is home to 1,889 bird species, or 20% of all bird species on earth.   Pictured below is an Andean Condor, the national bird of Columbia.
