Diglossa cyanea (Masked Flowerpiercer / Picaflor enmascarado)

Photo taken in La Ceja, Colombia; 2.300 meters above sea level.

 

The Masked Flowerpiercer is a common constituent of the Andean avifauna. It ranges from the coastal mountains of northern Venezuela south to northern Bolivia, principally at elevations above 2000 m, and it is generally found in humid montane forest and its borders, especially those close to the treeline.
