Glittering-throated Emerald (Amazilia fimbriata)

Glittering-throated Emeralds frequent the borders of dry, humid, and gallery forests, and also inhabit second growth, open woodlands, and gardens. They feed on nectar from flowering plants of all heights, and even gather nectar from a perch. These aggressive emeralds breed throughout most of the year and have an insect-like song.
