Green and white Hummingbird

Amazilia viridicauda

The Green and white Hummingbird belongs to the Trochilidae family. It is a medium-sized hummingbird of middle elevations. According to its colors, it has green above, white below, with a variably pinkish lower mandible. It is found in humid forest and around forest edges.

This species can be distinguished with care from the very similar White-bellied Hummingbird by its completely dark underside of the tail, where there is some white in White-bellied, and by its sometimes darker lower mandible. Green-and-white Hummingbird is also typically more closely associated with forested habitats than White-bellied. You can see it on the Manu National Park tours.
