Crimson Topaz

Topaza pella (Linnaeus, 1758)

The Crimson Topaz (Topaza pella) is a species of hummingbird in the Trochilidae family. It is found in Brazil, Colombia, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests. At 18 cm (7.5 in) and about 13 grams (0.5 oz), this may be the second largest species of hummingbird after the Giant Hummingbird. The male Crimson Topaz is notably larger and, with irdescent crimson plumage and sparkling green throat, more spectacular-looking than the female. They have short, slightly curved beaks that allow them to feed from a variety of exotic plants. They live in the upper and middle canopy, and are rarely seen on the ground. Source: Wikipedia
