     ... The Esmeraldas Woodstar (Chaetocercus berlepschi) is a poorly known and endangered hummingbird endemic to lowland and foothill moist forest in coastal western Ecuador. We encountered 11 new localities, observed two copulations, and found 26 nests of the species from October 2007 to April 2008. We observed the generally accepted descriptions of the female must have come from mis-labeled specimens of juvenile males and were incorrect. We collected the first three confirmed females of the species and describe their characteristics. The correct identification of female C. berlepschi and recognition of the species' breeding habitat should facilitate more effective conservation of the species. ...

     ESMERALDAS WOODSTAR Acestrura berlepschi

    This rare hummingbird apparently occurs primarily in lowland evergreen moist forest in a small area of western Ecuador, this being one of the most threatened forest types in the Neotropics.

    DISTRIBUTION The Esmeraldas Woodstar is known from 12 specimens (in AMNH, ANSP and MNHN), three of which are of uncertain origin (see Remarks), the other nine having been taken at three localities in western Ecuador. The localities, with coordinates from Paynter and Traylor (1977), are as follows: (Esmeraldas) Esmeraldas (0°59’N 79°42’W), where three males and three females (in AMNH) were collected from October to December 1912 (also Chapman 1926); ( Manabí) Chone (0°41’S 80°06’W), where two males (in AMNH) were taken at 20 m in December 1912 ...

     The Esmeraldas woodstar (Chaetocercus berlepschi) is a rare, neotropical species of hummingbird in the family Trochilidae.[3] There are six different species in the woodstar genus.[4] Most of them are poorly studied due to their small size, extremely similar resemblance to each other, and rarity. Esmeraldas woodstars are one of the smallest bird species. They are sexually dimorphic. The main difference between sexes is that males have a bright purple throat. Esmeraldas woodstars are found only on the Pacific coast of west Ecuador in semi-deciduous to evergreen forests.[4] They feed on the nectar of flowering shrubs and trees.[4] The main threat to this species is deforestation.[4] Esmeraldas woodstars are Vulnerable and require habitat protection.[3]
