Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Stunning and rather large hummingbird, found only on Robinson Crusoe Island in the Juan Fernandez archipelago. Locally fairly common in gardens, forest edges, native scrub, and groves of non-native Eucalyptus trees. Male is bright rusty orange overall with iridescent “firecrown” and an amazing song. Female looks very different: green above with a blue crown and flashy white tail sides, and white below with blue-green spotting. Smaller and very differently plumaged Green-backed Firecrown also occurs in same areas.
