Veraguan Mango

Anthracothorax veraguensis


Previously considered a Panamanian endemic, the Veraguan Mango is actually also found in Costa Rica. These medium-sized hummingbirds are still poorly known ecologically, but they inhabit vegetated pastures and stream edges, and forage on nectar in the lower and middle strata. They tend to be defensive around flowers in flowering trees. Both males and females are bronzy green above with somewhat decurved bills. Males have blue on the breast and central belly while females are white below with a teal stripe down the breast. (Cornell)
