Ecuador hummingbirds

Recommended Posts

These are Crowned Woodnymphs (Thalurania colombica). This species of hummingbird usually lives in the forest, but sometimes comes to feeders at edges and clearings. Males have a fairly long, deeply forked tail and an unmistakable emerald and violet plumage (but they often look dark). Females are much duller, but note the black bill, green flanks, and white-cornered blue-black tail.

And I agree - these are amazing photos! :classic_smile:
