Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Chunky hummingbird with a stout bill. Glittering green with a huge orange breast patch and purple forehead. Male has a black chin; female lacks this and has a short, whitish mustache stripe. Mainly a lowland species, but ranges well up into the eastern foothills of the Andes in some areas. Rather scarce in mature humid forest; occasionally visits feeders.
