Hummingbird, Ecuador

Hi All,

Just going through all my photos from my holiday in Ecuador in May 2018 and came across this particular hummingbird that I cannot identify. It was taken on 16th May at Mashpi Reserve in the cloud forest above Quito. I did email the lodge but never got a response so wondered if you guys could help.

Thanks in advance

Jonno

I think it is a Rufous-tailed Hummingbird
