Three hummers!

Three of the dozens of hummingbird species we were treated to in Ecuador!  Upper left and right: Collared Inca (Coeligena torquata) and Long-tailed Sylph (Aglaiocercus kingii), both of which frequent the feeders of Guango Lodge in upper montane rainforest.  Lower left: the Giant Hummingbird (Patagona gigas), a whopper of a hummer at about 9″ (22 cm) in length – the world’s largest.  We spotted this one at high elevation in Antisana Ecological Reserve.
