The black-breasted hillstar (Oreotrochilus melanogaster) is a species of hummingbird in the Trochilidae family. It is found in scrub at altitudes of 3,500 to 4,400 metres (11,500 to 14,400 ft) in the Andes of central Peru. Unlike the other hillstars, the tail, chest and belly of the male black-breasted hillstar are almost entirely black. source
