Coppery Emerald

Chlorostilbon russatus

 

El Dorado reserve, Santa Marta mountains, Magdalena, Colombia

 

Immature male or female. This species is found only in the Santa Marta mountains in Colombia and in the Sierra de Perijá along the Colombia-Venezuela border. Some field guides incorrectly show the female as lacking the ear patch and postocular line. I suspect this bird is an immature male, due to the buffy fringes to the feathers on the head.
