Scaly-breasted Hummingbird

The Scaly-breasted Hummingbird is a fairly large, unadorned hummingbird that is often included within the genus Campylopterus, the sabre-wings, due to the presence of a flattened-shaft on the outer primaries. It is divided into six subspecies which occur patchily in the lowlands and foothills of the Caribbean slope from southeast Mexico to Panama on the Pacific Slope of Costa Rica and Panama and the coastal region of Northern Colombia. The species occupies a fairly large range of habitats such as dry forest, edges and clearings of gallery and humid forest, mangroves and other open habitats but avoids the interior of closed evergreen forest. You can also find them at coffee plantations and open areas with scattered tall trees.




The plumage is fairly pain; the upper plumage is metallic bronze-green and the under plumage mostly greyish / buff. It has a dark blue-green tail with white tips on the outer tail feathers. The throat and chest feathers are dull green with greyish buff edging - producing the effect of scales - for which it was named. It has a small whitish spot behind each eye. It has a long bill; the upper bill is black and the lower is reddish with a black tip. Males and females look alike.
