Pink-throated Brilliant Heliodoxa gularis

  • © Tuomas Seimola

Listed as near threatened because of extensive deforestation in its range, the Pink-throated Brilliant population is considered to be declining. Fairly little is known regarding the behavior of these humid montane forest inhabitants. Both males and females have a pinkish throat patch, but it is more extensive on males. Both genders have bronzy green tails and white undertail coverts.
