  4. Hi Wendy, lovely photo, but this isn't a Rufous-tailed Hummingbird - that species doesn't reach Brazil, and it doesn't have the prominent rufous chin of your bird. This is a Gilded Hummingbird (Hylocharis chrysura). Posted 5 months ago
    1. Even better for Wendy as this is a species intro :)

      @Wendy: have made the species correction and also made a few small changes to the title and description to reflect this. Feel free to enhance it again if want to.
