The Bluish Flowerpiercer is distributed from northern Venezuela to northern Bolivia. See the distribution map at Birdlife International. It is found mainly in humid forest and, in the case of Peru, between 1,300 and 3,100 metres.

Of the 3 flowerpiercers at Abra Patricia, I found this one to be the most shy and difficult to photograph. Both sexes are a dull bluish-grey with a dull red iris.
