Hummingbird - Devil's Island, off French Guiana

I've stitched 3 views of this hummer together to make viewing easier. The only one that looks anything like this in my books, is Versicolored Emerald -Amazilia (Agyrtria) versicolor. Am I right?

The hummer was actually seen on the Isla Royale, the only inhabited island of the group of 3 making up the Salvation Islands, about 11 km off the coast of French Guiana.

Thanks....

Close, but not quite: Plain-bellied Emerald (Amazilia (Agyrtria) leucogaster). A coastal shrub specialist.
