Hummingbird in Santiago, Chile (1 Viewer)


New member
Hi all,

I recently moved to Santiago, Chile and have been enjoying the splendid birds here. Our new apartment has a couple hummingbirds around, so I setup a birdcam using a raspberry pi with our feeder.

I have a couple shots of the most common hummingbird we see, but I am having a hard time sorting out what species it is. Any help would be appreciated!

Location: Santiago, Chile
Date: Apr 26, 2020 (mid fall)
Size: Hard to say, I would estimate around 8cm head to tail. Maybe a bit bigger.
Behavior: Gregarious and very interested in my feeder... Hungry?
