Sure about identification? Cf. with Chlorostilbon lucidus.

Thank you for drawing my attention to this pic: you are correct, this the Glittering-bellied Emerald (Chlorostilbon lucidus). Unfortunately, "Editing of this IBC material is not currently available due to technical changes related to the transition to Macaulay Library". Therefore, I will change the bird ID after the transition is completed.
