The Long-billed Hermit is 15cm in length, making it a large hummingbird with its long bill and tail. The bill itself measures nearly 4cm long! I photographed this Long-billed Hermit at the Owlet Lodge at the Abra Patricia Reserve in Peru with Michael Parr of American Bird Conservancy and Tino Aucca of ECOAN – Asociacion Ecosistemas Andinos.
