Hummingbirds, La Carbonera, Colombia (1 Viewer)


Well-known member

Scanning through old photos, found these hummingbirds. Photos taken in the coffee region of Colombia, around 3500m high, in May 2012.
Help with the IDs?

Birds of Northern South America says next to Buff-Tailed Coronet "all Boissonneaua coronets have the habit of holding their wings up in the air for a few moments after landing on a perch" - an ID tip very nicely shown in your photo!

Also great photo showing the enormous beak length of the Sword-billed. I'm jealous because I haven't managed to see one yet.
