More help with Peru birds and Hummingbirds (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
These birds were shot at Agua Calientes near Machu Pichu in Peru. So many types of Hummingbirds that look almost the same. Any help again appreciated

2 is Golden-crowned Flycatcher, my guess on the hummingbirds is maybe a Gray-breasted Sabrewing for the first and a White-bellied for the second.
Thanks for the help. Agree with 1 to 4(although 4 does look like a green crowned wood nimph but not found in that area. Still need to get number 5 if anyone can help.

Thanks again
number 4 could be green-and-white hummingbird.

these are extremely similar to white-bellied (can't remember the diagnostic features), but i think commoner in moist habitats and i believe aguas calientes is a known good site for them.

Yes Green and White and White Bellied are almost identical so will have to leave a question mark there. Thick Billed Euphonia looks the best match so thanks for your help.
