SPECIES INFO

The Gilded Hummingbird (Hylocharis chrysura), also known as the Gilded Sapphire, is a species of hummingbird in the Trochilidae family. It is found in a wide range of open and semi-open habitats in southern Brazil, Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay and northern Argentina. It is generally common, and therefore considered to be of least concern by BirdLife International and consequently the IUCN. It is overall greenish-golden with a coppery tail, whitish-buff underparts, a rufous chin, and a slightly decurved, black-tipped red bill.
