Velvet-Purple Coronet

So I came across this article the other day: http://www.mnn.com/earth-matters/animals/stories/18-strange-and-beautiful-hummingbird-species and decided that I was going to make all of these hummingbirds. I’d like to make them all realistic. With a little research I found the sizes for all of them except one, the Velvet-Purple Coronet! Does anyone know the measurements of this bird? Or where I can find any info?


  1. Along with others, I’ve had a search around for the size, but really there is very little about these hummers ‘out there’, either in traditional places (Cornell etc) or elsewhere. All I can say is that they are, for a hummingbird species, large. How helpful is that? RH
