Small, compact, short-billed and short-tailed hummingbird with green tail. Male all glittering green; female green above and gray below with dark cheek, white eyeline, and white-tipped tail. Occurs near humid forest borders in highlands (from 1800 m), usually in open areas, gardens, and cultivated areas. Often perched alone near small flowers at low height. Very similar to other emerald species; distinguished from male and female Short-tailed Emerald by having wings and tail the same length when perched; from male Green-tailed Emerald by irregular length tail feathers. Endemic to the Andes and Coastal Cordillera of Venezuela.
