     Little Woodstar (Chaetocercus bombus)

    Order: Caprimulgiformes | Family: Trochilidae | IUCN Status: Vulnerable

     ... Identification & Behavior: ~6.5 cm (2.5 in). The male Little Woodstar is mostly green with buff sides of the neck and breast. It has a broad purple gorget. The tail is short deeply forked and made out of spiky feathers. The female is green above with buff underparts and sides of the neck. It has a dusky often poorly defined mask across the eye. The tail is rufous with a median black band. Both sexes have white patches on the sides of the rump and a nearly straight and black bill. It is similar to the White-bellied Woodstar but is distinguished by being smaller, mostly green (male), and uniformly buff underparts in the female. Also, see Amethyst Woodstar. ...

     ... Lathrotriccus griseipectus is threatened within its main range in the Tumbesian region as well as here, and Taphrolesbia griseiventris is extremely poorly known and found at very few localities (including one in the Peruvian high Andes, EBA 051) (Collar et al. 1992, 1994). A further six species are considered Near Threatened. The widespread but threatened (Endangered) Little Woodstar Acestrura bombus has also been recorded (Collar et al. 1992). ...

    Identification of Little Woodstar Chaetocerus bombus in Ecuador

     Little Woodstar Chaetocerus bombus is listed as Vulnerable by BirdLife International, largely because its habitat is now very fragmented, and there have been comparatively few recent records1 . It occurs on Andean slopes in southern Colombia, Ecuador and northern Peru 1. Ridgely & Greenfield 3 describe it as ‘Rare to perhaps locally (seasonally?) uncommon’ in Ecuador and list recent reports from five sites in four provinces, but state that ‘In no area is the species now known to be present regularly or in large numbers.’ It therefore remains rather poorly known, and is not an easy species to observe. ...

    Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forest, subtropical or tropical moist lowland forest, and subtropical or tropical moist montane forest. It is vulnerable to habitat loss. At 7.8 cm (3.1 in), it measures 8 mm (0.31 in) longer than the closely related gorgeted woodstar and the short-tailed woodstar.
