This large hummingbird has a somewhat down-curved bill. Though iridescent green, it appears black in mediocre to poor light. Most easily distinguished from Purple-throated Carib by its dull wings (wings are iridescent green in Purple-throated) and less curved bill. Common in much of its range, where it frequents forests but also visits gardens and parks. Calls include “chewp” and a variety of twitters.
