White-booted Racket-tail

Ocreatus underwoodii (Lesson, RP 1832)

The white-booted racket-tail is a species of hummingbird. It is found in the Andean cordillera of northern Venezuela, western Colombia, and on the eastern slope of the Andes in Ecuador. Long considered the only species in the monotypic genus Ocreatus, the bird is now sometimes split into three species, the white-booted racket-tail, the Peruvian racket-tail, and the rufous-booted racket-tail. Some taxonomists, such as the American Ornithological Society, continue to lump all the species together, calling it the booted racket-tail. Source: Wikipedia
