One of the many species of hummingbird that we saw in Ecuador.
This one was on the eastern slopes of the Andes in the Amazon watershed.

The white-tailed hillstar is a species of hummingbird in the Trochilidae family, and the only member of the genus Urochroa. It is found in humid montane forest in southern Colombia, Ecuador, and northern Peru.
