Tapajós Hermit

Phaethornis aethopygus Zimmer, JT, 1950

The Tapajós Hermit (Phaethornis aethopyga) is a species of hummingbird in the Trochilidae family. It is found in the south-eastern Amazon in Brazil, and its common name refers to the Tapajós River, which forms the western border of its distribution. This small hermit has rufous underparts, rump and tail-tips, white to the base of the tail, and a dark throat. Females are paler and longer-tailed than males. Source: Wikipedia
