Gorgeted sunangel

The gorgeted sunangel (Heliangelus strophianus) is a species of hummingbird found on the west slope of Ecuador and extreme southwestern Colombia.


This hummingbird is sexually dimorphic, but only slightly. Both sexes are shining green above with a small white postocular spot and a blue-black tail. Their lower underparts are also shining green bordered above by a white pectoral collar. The male has a reddish pink throat that extends from the white collar to almost the base of the bill. The female has a black chin with white stripes and a smaller reddish pink throat patch.
