White-sided Flowerpiercer

Diglossa albilatera


My boyfriend took this beautiful picture of this bird. Seen in Cocora Valley in Salento, Colombia. This bird has a particular beak. In spanish: "Pincha flores" o "Roba nectar". This bird has an important role in the pollination of flowers around them.


Cloud Forest. It was really foggy that day. The species ranges from northern Venezuela south to southern Peru, and occurs at forest borders and in scrubby clearings at altitudes between at least 1800 and 2800 m.
