Black Inca

Coeligena prunellei

Description:

small black hummingbird with white around the throat

Habitat:

cloudforest, 2100m

Notes:

I spotted this and a few other hummingbirds feeding on a giant Abutilong shrub in front of El Refugio in Chicaque Parque Natural. These were the first hummingbird photos I've ever taken and I was happy they came out good.
