Sword-billed Hummingbird (Ensifera ensifera)

Sword-billed Hummingbird (Ensifera ensifera). Male. Guango Lodge, Papallacta, eastern Andes, Ecuador. One of many different species of hummingbirds we encountered on our trip to Ecuador. This spectacular hummingbird has a bill about 90-100mm (3.5-4") long, and has evolved to feed from flowers with long corollas, particularly Datura flowers.
