SPECIES INFO

The Amazilia Hummingbird (Amazilia amazilia) is a species of hummingbird, a family of small near passerine birds. The Loja Hummingbird (A. alticola), with less rufous to the underparts, is sometimes considered a subspecies of the Amazilia Hummingbird.

The Amazilia Hummingbird occurs in western Peru and Ecuador. It is generally common, and can regularly be seen even in major cities such as Lima and Guayaquil. It prefers dry, open or semi-open habitats, but also occurs in forest. In its range it is easily recognized by the combination of a black-tipped red bill and mainly rufous underparts.
