Note: I know that many people are waiting to see this amazing and beautiful bird; in my recent tour with Mr. Bill Porteous we are searching the enigmatic Tocuyo Sparrow when in a small bush with purple flowers close to the beach we saw this incredible bird; in the first time we saw Ruby Topaz perch in a small branch and we was very excited, but after we saw this hummingbird in the flowers many times with other males and females, the best thing was that this specie was a lifer for my clients and a unexpected specie.
Note: This very nice hummingbird is possible to see in other locations in Colombia, the most easy places definitely is el Cauca Location in Ocaña municipality, if you can visit this place don’t forget to search in small bushes with pink flowers, this is a special plant for this bird in this location; will be good if you can visit this place because other species very important possible to see there are Todd's Parakeet and Golden-winged Sparrow. In Paujil natural Reserve is possible also, but is very occasional, the best places is in the track called "Loma Patoco" close to the small lake at the right side of the path.
Nice individual photographed in Cerulean Warbler Reserve in San Vicente de Chucuri, Santander. Digiscoping.
