Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Large and dazzling hummingbird found in the Andes of northern Colombia and barely into western Venezuela. Males look dark at a distance, but are unmistakable in good light: dark blackish head and breast with a green forecrown, a purplish-blue throat patch, and a glittering purplish-pink belly. On females, look for a buffy throat, a purplish-pink belly, and a long straight bill. Occurs in montane forests, edges, and gardens; visits feeders.
