Hummingbirds are difficult to photograph and for me sometimes more difficult to identify (why they are the last birds I’m sharing), so I’m proud of these photos and three represent new species for my photo collection. Of course we saw many more species, especially on the trail in the wild, but too difficult to photograph.

For more bird photos see my Costa Rica Birds Photo Gallery, 169 species & 26 are hummingbirds!
