TURQUOISE-THROATED PUFFLEG

turquiose throated puffleg

A 10cm hummingbird, mostly green with a violet-blue throat and ruffs of downy white feathers on the legs. Not seen in its home range since Victorian times, numbers therefore thought to be very low, less than 50. Perhaps surviving in the ravines of the river Guaillabamba in Equador. Suffers because almost all of this bird's home has been destroyed.
