Racket-tailed Coquette

Discosura longicaudus

 

Atta Rainforest Lodge, Potaro-Siparuni, Guyana.

 

Female, or perhaps an immature male. Despite the name, it's not really a coquette; the thorntails are currently placed in the same genus. Found in northern South America and eastern Brazil; it seems to be rare throughout its range.
