SPECIES INFO

The Indigo-capped Hummingbird (Amazilia cyanifrons), sometimes placed in the genus Saucerottia, is a species of hummingbird in the Trochilidae family.

It is found in Colombia. A turquoise-capped form known only from the Miravalles Volcano in Costa Rica may represent a separate subspecies or even species, the Miravalles or Alfaro's Hummingbird (Amazilia alfaroana), but its exact status difficult to judge, as there are no recent records and it is likely to be extinct.

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical moist montane forests, and heavily degraded former forest.
