Chlorostilbon melanorhynchus -female- (Western Emerald / Esmeralda occidental)

La Ceja, Colombia; 2.300 meters above sea level.

 

The Western Emerald is found in Colombia and Ecuador. They have a more straight flight pattern than do many hummers, and forage individually at flowers in the lower and middle strata. Males sparkle with green throughout while females are green above and gray below.
