Description

Ya varias veces he visto en nuestro pequeño jardín un colibrí muy chiquito, no más grande que 6 cm, diferente de los colibrís que normalmente se ven. Hoy hice una grabación de este ave, fotos no tengo. Sé que existen colibrís muy chiquitos del tamaño de un abejorro, pero no sabía que también viven en la Ciudad de México. Quiero saber más de este pájaro. Tiene una banda blanca muy marcada en la parte inferior de su espalda.
Quién me puede informar más?

Description from Wikipedia

Traditionally, the bird order Apodiformes contained three living families: the swifts (Apodidae), the tree swifts (Hemiprocnidae), and the hummingbirds (Trochilidae). In the Sibley-Ahlquist taxonomy, this order is raised to a superorder Apodimorphae in which hummingbirds are separated as a new order, Trochiliformes. With nearly 450 species identified to date, they are the most diverse order of birds after the passerines.
