Blue-headed Hummingbird

Cyanophaia bicolor


At 9.5cm or 3.75" this male has an electric blue/violet head with its throat, upper breast, and tail the same. The lower mandible is pink with a black tip (see pic 5).


I spotted this little beauty sitting on the outer edges of rich, moist rainforest in Syndicate.


This stunning little hummingbird is found only on the islands of Dominica and Martinique. Reference for identification: "Dominica's Birds", p87, Arlington James, Stephen Durand, and Bertrand Jno. Baptiste.
