|Short-billed Honeycreeper (Cyanerpes nitidus)
|Cristalino Lodge, Mato Grosso, Brazil
The Purple Honeycreeper is distributed in the Amazon and Orinoco Basins but is not so widespread as the Purple Honeycreeper Cyanerpes caeruleus. It is found in the canopy and on the borders of humid forest often with other Cyanerpes honeycreepers but it seems to be the least common.
|Both sexes are very similar to the Purple Honeycreeper but with a much shorter bill and with pink to orange legs. The male has a larger black bib.|
