Hummingbird Heaven!

Today is our last day in Costa Rica this trip.  We went up to La Paz waterfall gardens, basically to sit around and look at hummingbirds.  I should have brought a sweater, and ended up getting a sweatshirt at the shop there.  It was not as good as my sweater but it was better than nothing - it was chilly and raining all day!  However the hummingbird feeders were well worth it.  We trekked down there and stayed in a little rain shelter next to a feeder as the hummingbirds buzzed all around us.  It was amazing!  I have officially given up on identifying them all.  If anyone wants to take a shot at it, feel free!

  1. I think your mystery hummer is either a black-bellied hummingbird or a stripe-tailed hummingbird... (pg. 132 in Garrigues) - Glenn
