A text in english:

Glittering-throated Emerald (Amazilia fimbriata), Photographed in Brasília, Brasil

The males have the throat a "glittering" green while the females have a white stripe up the middle of the throat.

The Glittering-throated Emerald is found in a wide variety of open and semi-open habitats including gardens but it is not found in the interiors of forests.

Glittering-throated Emeralds are found from Colombia through to south-east Brazil. The first two photos were taken in south-east Brazil and are of the subspecies Amazilia fimbriata tephrocephala. This tends to be larger than the other subspecies such as the nominate A. f. fimbriata.

The nest was on a horizontal branch in a shrub about 2 metres off the ground and consisted of a neat cup constructed from what looked like fine strands of dry vegetation, cobwebs and lichen.This photo was taken in Minas Gerais and shows a female of the subspecies A. f. nigricauda.

The genus name Amazilia comes from Amazili, an Inca heroine in Jean François Marmontel's 1777 novel "Les Incas, ou la destruction de l'Empire du Pérou", according to Jobling.
