Gray Breasted Sabrewing 

Campylopterus largipennis

The Gray breasted Sabrewing is a big hummingbird of Amazonian forests and semi-open habitats. It has a plain grayish underside and shiny green upperparts, with a noticeable dark tail tipped in white. You can also spot a slightly curved, sturdy bill and a white spot behind the eye. This species usually inhabits forest clearings, gaps, and gardens, and feeds on low to mid-level plants. It is frequently seen hovering while foraging. If you want to observe it, join us on our tours to the Manu National Park.
