The hook-billed hermit (Glaucis dohrnii) is an endangered species of hummingbird in the family Trochilidae. It is found in humid forests in eastern Brazil, with recent records from the states of Espírito Santo and Bahia only. It resembles the far more common rufous-breasted hermit, but has a straighter bill and lacks rufous in the tail. It is threatened by habitat loss and changing migration patterns.
