Great Sapphirewing

Pterophanes cyanopterus (Fraser, 1840)

The Great Sapphirewing (Pterophanes cyanopterus) is a species of hummingbird in the Trochilidae family. It is found in Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist montane forests. At 15.5-17.5 cm (6–7 in) in length and weighing about 10 grams, this is one of the largest species of hummingbird, though slightly smaller than the Topaza hummingbirds and the Giant Hummingbird.
