Saw-billed Hermit, Ramphodon naevius



The Saw-billed Hermit (Ramphodon naevius) is a hummingbird from southeastern Brazil. It is around 14–16 cm long and is one of the heaviest of the hermits; its straight bill has a hooked tip. It lives in humid forests, where it aggressively defends feeding routes from individuals of its own species as well as other hummingbirds. It is currently considered near-threatened, since it has a restricted range in threatened Atlantic forests.
