The tiny Glow Throated Hummingbird is believed to be a small population endemic to Panama, living in subtropical and forest clearings between 700 and 1800 meters above sea level. The males are various shades of green and bronze, with hints of cinnamon, a red gorget with a white collar, and a black bill. Females are a slightly paler version. Their population size is unknown due to their specific requirements in a narrow band of the environment. Like all hummers, they are fast and feisty, finding food from native vegetation.
