I hear that! I have tons of photos that I know I need to go through again. At least you'll have a place for it when you find it

It wasn't part of the trip, unfortunately. Hopefully next time. You had a picture of a green violet ear that you haven't put up yet. Also, if you're interested, there is a birds of Costa Rica and Panama mission you can add these to, at your leisure

you should have gone to the monteverde cloud forest reserve, right down the road was a cafe and a small tourist shop. Right outside they must have had 15 humming bird feeders. it was awesome :)

I'm jealous. We were in Costa Rica last year, but no place we stayed had feeders. We saw rufous tailed and one other... I think it was a mango. I had hoped for more

I agree with Karen, you should put them into separate spottings.

It appears to be two different species or more - make separate spottings with each species and ask for help with identification. These are gorgeous!
