By far the most common of Cuba's two resident hummingbirds, frequently seen throughout Cuba, including the centre of Havana. Still tricky little devils to photograph though!

Palpite, Zapata National Park, Matanzas, Cuba.

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.
