Many spotted Hummingbird

Elliotomyia chionogaster

The Many-spotted Hummingbird belongs to the Trochilidae family. We can see it on the eastern slope of the Andes of Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia. Its habitat is the interior and edges of humid forests and subtropical forests, at elevations between 400 and 1500 meters above sea level. (1,300 and 4,900 ft), however, in Peru it can be found up to 2800 m. (9,200ft).
The Many spotted Hummingbird measures between 10.5 and 11.4 cm in length and its bill is black, semi-curved and measures 2.3 cm.
Its plumage in the upper part is grass green to coppery and white in the lower part. Its chest and belly have many green spots except in the center, being less intense in females. Its tail is bluish-green with gray tips.
