    Any member from France know about wonderful collection of Hummingbirds of Mr. Jacques Ducros ?

    Mr. Jacques Ducros from France is breeding many species of hummingbirds. Since 1994, Jacques has been licensed by the French government to possess and breed hummingbirds. Fascinated by them since childhood, he currently has about 100 hummers of different species in a very large aviary built onto their home in Pont de l'Etoile, near Marseilles in the south of France.

    In his book It's a Hummingbird's Life Mr. Jacques has also mentioned about "Robert Perez who, without doubt, currently has one of the largest hummingbird aviaries in Europe"

    Mr. Jacques also published numerous magazine articles and 3 books on breeding hummingbirds in captivity, namely as, It's a Hummingbird's Life, Hummingbird Care & Hummingbirds: the passion of a lifetime.
