Coeligena inca

Gould's Inca

The Gould's Inca (Coeligena inca) is a species of hummingbird found in humid Andean forest of south-eastern Peru and Bolivia. It is sometimes considered a subspecies of the Collared Inca, but has a rufous (not white) chest-patch. BirdLife International (and consequently IUCN) includes it as a subspecies of the Collared Inca and therefore do not rate it, but it remains locally fairly common and is unlikely to be threatened.
