Heliodoxa rubinoides (Fawn-breasted Brilliant / Brillante Pechigamuza)

Finca Alejandria, Km 18 Via Cali-Buenaventura, Cali, Colombia.


Fawn-breasted Brilliant is a medium sized hummingbird, and is mostly cinnamon below with a small pink throat patch; the pink throat may be reduced on the female, however.


Most species of Brilliant occupy humid montane forests, and Fawn-breasted Brilliant is no exception; it occurs in the Andes of Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru. These hummingbirds usually are solitary and spend the majority of their time in the lower to mid levels of cloud forest interior, although they sometimes venture to shaded forest borders or open habitats.
