Collared Inca (Coeligena torquata)

A fairly common and widespread hummer in the Andes but - as always - so much nicer to watch feeding "naturally" rather than at a plastic feeder. This individual spent several minutes around the same flowering tree allowing plenty of practice (for me!) at trying to predict where it would feed next. This shot shows off the tail pattern particularly well.

Mixed open country & mainly secondary forest in foothills of Eastern Andes.
