Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Scarce Andean hummingbird with a short, awl-like bill that is upturned at the tip. Mostly green, and streaked with white on the underparts; also note the buff tinge to belly and white spot behind the eye. Similar to female Purple-backed Thornbill, but can be identified by its distinctive bill shape. Inhabits high elevation cloud forest, where it is usually encountered feeding on flowers at forest edge and in clearings.
