Indigo flowerpiercer

The indigo flowerpiercer (Diglossa indigotica) is a species of bird in the family Thraupidae. It is found in humid forest on the lower west Andean slopes in northern Ecuador and Colombia.

This species occupies a relatively small range in western Colombia and northwest Ecuador, in which latter country it appears to be particularly uncommon and difficult to find. In the Colombian portion of its range, in contrast, the Indigo Flowerpiercer, although local remains reasonably numerous. Nonetheless, the overall population trend is doubtless declining. As befits its name, the Indigo Flowerpiercer has a brilliant ultramarine plumage, relieved only by the blackish flight feathers and a narrow black eye-ring and lores, whilst the irides are deep red, and brighter than those of any other Diglossa species.
