white-chested emerald
(Amazilia brevirostris, NL: witborstamazilia)

Trinidad, Asa Wright Nature Centre

This was one of the hummingbirds which perched a lot, so it was easy to photograph.
They are small but very aggressive in defending their territory.
The image was made from the veranda of the AWC, really a bird photographers paradise.
