Brown Violetear Hummingbird

Colibri delphinae


Lacking the bright gaudy greens of other members of the genus, the overall brown plumage and bright violet auriculars make the Brown Violetear one of the most distinctive hummingbirds.


The brown violetear is a large hummingbird that breeds at middle elevations in the mountains in Central America, and western and northern South America with isolated populations on Trinidad and in the Brazilian state Bahia


The other Hummingbird in photo #1 is Purple-bibbed Whitetip (f)
