Green-tailed Trainbearer

Lesbia nuna


Posibly Lesbia nuna, I am not sure. A small hummingbird with a very long tail, from the high Andes in Ecuador (Chaullbamba, Cuenca).

Beautiful! Your first pic is a bit blurry and should be your last one.

I think it's Lesbia nuna or Lesbia victoriae ... not sure.

Is it too green to be Aglaiocercus kingi mocoa (Long-tailed Sylph) ?
