The Amazilia Hummingbird (Amazilis amazilia) is a species of hummingbird, a family of small near passerine birds. The Loja hummingbird (A. amazilia alticola), with less rufous to the underparts, is sometimes considered a subspecies of the amazilia hummingbird.
The amazilia hummingbird occurs in western Peru and south-western Ecuador. It is generally common, and can regularly be seen even in major cities such as Lima and Guayaquil. It prefers dry, open or semi-open habitats, but also occurs in forest. In its range it is easily recognized by the combination of a black-tipped red bill and mainly rufous underparts. It is a territorial species.
