Long-billed Hermit

Phaethornis longirostris (Delattre, 1843)

The Long-billed Hermit (Phaethornis longirostris) is a large hummingbird that is a resident breeder from central Mexico south to northwestern Colombia, extreme western Venezuela and western Ecuador. This species is currently (2006) known as the Western Long-tailed Hermit, but it is likely, following recommendations from Gary Stiles in February 2006, that the new name will be officially adopted by most authorities.
