Desmond, before making an ID suggestion based on the common name you think it should be called, look at the scientific name. If the scientific name listed and the scientific name you want to suggest are the same, then DON'T make the ID suggestion. Common names are highly variable and people can call it whatever they want, that is the whole point of scientific names. So again, I have removed this ID suggestion.

I think that their actually called Violet/purple-crowned woodnymphs (Thalurania colombica) instead of just a crowned woodnymph.
