Anthracothorax nigricollis ♀️ (Black-throated Mango / Mango pechinegro)

The black-throated mango is a mainly South American hummingbird species.

 

The female black-throated mango has bronze-green upperparts and white underparts with a black central stripe.

 

The food of this species is nectar, often taken from the flowers of large trees. This hummingbird is also notably insectivorous, often hovering in open areas to catch flying insects.

 

The black-throated mango's breeding season lasts almost year-round in most of its range.
