Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Drab, long-billed hummingbird of Andean cloud forest in western Ecuador and western Colombia. Brown, bronze, and dull green tones dominate its plumage, but the white patches on the sides of neck shine like beacons in the dark forest that it inhabits. Purple throat patch (reduced in female) is usually inconspicuous. Usually found feeding on tubular flowers inside forest or along the edge, and regularly visits feeders in some areas.
