Green Violet-ear

Green Violet-ear Hummingbird. This tiny bird is a common highland resident, but like most hummingbirds, it’s easier to hear than to see. Hummingbirds move quickly along flowers sipping small amounts of nectar, but also need to feed on small arthropods in order to obtain enough nutrients to fulfill their high energy demands. They are also only found in the Americas. See Lodge information and prices.
