  • The “Blue-throated hillstar”. Oreotrochilus cyanolaemus is a hummingbird found only in a small portion of the southwestern Andes in Ecuador (about 28,000 acres), not surpassing 3700 m. 

    The preferred habitat of the blue-throated hillstar is grassland with patches of shrubs in the Andean paramo. 

    It was observed feeding most frequently from Chuquiraga jussieui.

    It was discovered in 2017.
