The white-bellied hummingbird (Amazilia chionogaster) is a species of hummingbird in the Trochilidae family. It is found at forest edge, woodland, scrub and gardens in the Andes, ranging from northern Peru south through Bolivia to north-western Argentina. There are also lowland populations in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, and Mato Grosso, Brazil. It is generally fairly common.

Description[edit]

Its upperparts are green and its underparts are white. Unlike other similar hummingbirds in its range (for example the green-and-white hummingbird), the basal half of the inner webs of the rectrices are white, but this is typically only visible from below.
