Mangrove Hummingbird it is then....or another idea is you can email the adventure park and hopefully they will be able to ID your hummingbird. I did that with some of my pics.

AnnalisaD, I don't remember a rufous tail in this bird. In fact, I thought of that species, but, because this lacks the rufous tail I discarded it.

Do you recall if it a rusty colored tail? My guess is Rufous-tailed Hummingbird.
