White-tailed hillstar, Montezuma, Colombia
A fairly dull name for a bird with this many colors. This hillstar was found in the lodge area of Tatama National Park near a feeder. Weak flash light reflects on their iridescent feathers, showing the true colors of this bird: brown, orange, green, blue, yellow. Based on range, likely this is the West Andes sub species: Urochroa bougueri bougueri.
By the way, this is the first photo of a series that will last months where I'll document the trip we just came back from through North West Colombia. I'll put all photos below this tag:
