This extremely range-restricted hummingbird can be seen at ProAve’s Colibrí del Sol nature reserve in the municipality of Urrao (Antioquia), where it comes very well into feeders placed along the trail that leads to the Páramo de Frontino. At this site in the Western Andes, the endemic Chestnut-bellied Flowerpiercer (Diglossa gloriosissima) can also be seen.
