     Blue-chinned Emerald Chlorostilbon notatus

    (aka Blue-chinned Sapphire Chlorestes notata - see HBW, Volume 5, Page 572)

    Amazonia National Park, Pará, Brazil

    September 2000

    The Blue-chinned Emerald is found from Colombia to eastern Brazil and along the Amazon River. It is found in a variety of habitats ranging from várzea and terra firme forest edges to shrubby areas and gardens.

    It feeds mainly on nectar and the male establishes a feeding territory which it defends vigorously. It also feeds on insects. ...

     Blue-Chined Sapphire (Chlorestes notata)

       The iridescence of the Blue-chinned Sapphire can captivate anyone – from the avid bird watcher to the curious young child. As a member of the Trochilidae (Hummingbird) family, it is small, quick, and beautiful of course. The green feathers on its upper body glisten in the sunlight, contrasting with its dark blue tail. In the right lighting, it transforms into a brilliant subject to photograph, and the careful eye may even spot its namesake blue ‘chin’.

    This species, which is common in Trinidad forests, is also found in northern South America, including the Brazilian Amazon. The feather-covered gem feeds on nectar and only occasionally eats insects. At our own Springhill Estate, it is regularly seen feasting on the nectar of the Vervine (Stachytarpheta jamaicensis) plants in front of the verandah but it feeds on all types of plants – large and small trees (e.g. Ryania speciosa or Bois L’agli), shrubs or herbaceous plants. ...

      The blue-chinned sapphire or blue-chinned emerald (Chlorestes notata) is a hummingbird that breeds from Colombia south and east to the Guianas, Trinidad, Peru, and Brazil. There have been occasional records from Tobago. For Brazil, the species' range is along the main Amazon River Basin, as well as the Atlantic Forest, both in the northeast, as well as far south on the southeast coastal strip, (an entire coastal strip, north-east-south of about 3000 km). It is sometimes placed in the genus Chlorostilbon.

    It is a bird of forests and sometimes cultivated areas with large trees. The female lays her eggs in a deep cup nest, made of lichen and other fine plant material and placed on a horizontal tree branch. Incubation is 16 days with a further 18–19 days to fledging.

    Blue-chinned sapphires feed on insects and nectar, mainly in trees but sometimes on vines, shrubs, herbs, epiphytes[3] or smaller plants like Heliconia. The song is a high metallic ssooo-ssooo-ssooo.


    The blue-chinned sapphire is 8.9 cm long and weighs 3.8 g. The bill is fairly straight, with the upper mandible black and the lower reddish. The male has mainly green plumage, darker above, with white thighs, a forked metallic blue tail and blue upper throat. The female differs from the male in that she has green-spotted white underparts. ...

     ... Emeraude à menton bleu, "Chlorestes notata", en Guyane. L'objectif de la mission était d'évaluer l'impact de la fragmentation des forêts sur plusieurs espèces d'oiseaux forestiers. Mais l'émeraude à menton bleu ne faisait pas partie des espèces étudiées. Souvent due aux activités anthropiques, cette fragmentation est impliquée dans le déclin, voire la disparition locale, de plusieurs espèces d'oiseaux de la zone Caraïbe. Cette mission était menée dans le cadre du programme "Fragmentation et biological invasions" conduit en Guyane française, en Guadeloupe, en Martinique et à Montserrat. ...
