Coppery-Headed Emerald

Elvira cupreiceps


One of Costa Rica's endemic bird species, the Coppery-Headed Emerald is a small hummingbird found at middle elevations. The male has a distinctive copper crown and rump. Because it has a short bill, it feeds mainly at smaller flowers, at all forest levels.
