Sombre Hummingbird

Aphantochroa cirrochloris

 

Vale das Taquaras, Rio de Janeiro state, Brazil.

 

Perhaps the dullest of all the hummingbirds endemic to Brazil. It is a monotypic genus, though some authorities want to place it in Campylopterus due to similarities in primary structure, though I would never has guessed that relationship from looking at the bird.
