The amazilia hummingbird (Amazilia amazilia) is a species of hummingbird. The loja hummingbird (A. alticola) has less tan-brown underparts. It is sometimes thought to be a subspecies of the amazilia hummingbird.

The amazilia hummingbird lives in western Peru and Ecuador. It is mostly common, and can be seen even in big cities such as Lima and Guayaquil. It likes dry, open or partly-open habitats, but also lives in forests.
