  • Colibri Manglero: Messengers of La Sierra


    Sapphire-bellied hummingbird / Blaubauchkolibri / Chrysuronia lilliae
    Conservation status: EN - Endangered

    The Sapphire-bellied Hummingbird is a rare, endangered and little-known hummingbird found in mangrove forests and adjacent scrubby areas along the Colombian coast. Measuring only 8 cm, this small, lonely and territorial bird displays an explosion of colour in its plumage, ranging from intense sapphire blue to green to iridescent purple. 

    For multiple indigenous communities living in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, birds are essential in their understanding of the world. The Guacamaya and the Hummingbird are believed to have brought maize and coca to Earth. For the Wiwa people, hummingbirds are message carriers.

    Currently, they are greatly endangered due to habitat loss.
