Brown Violetear Hummingbird

This uncommon hummingbird, a Brown Violetear, makes its home near Alambi, Ecuador. His only spots of color are the violet on the sides of his head and the splash of green turning to blue turning to violet at his throat. Capturing all colors at the same time is a rare event... almost as uncommon as seeing the hummingbird itself!
