White-Bellied Woodstar

Chaetocercus mulsant

Description:

Joao Krajewski took this picture right at the front of the lodge in August. Fantastic picture, I don't know how he does it. I think we're looking at a female little woodstar or white-bellied woodstar-I'd be happy to be given a definitive answer...

Habitat:

Cloud Forest Reserve at Santa Lucia, Pichincha, Ecuador. 1920m in primary forest.

Erm, this isn't a Purple-throated Woodstar is it?

Any word on whether this is a little or white-bellied woodstar?
