A Speckled Hummingbird welcomed us. Usually they spent most of its time in the surrounding flowers, often visiting the feeders.The Tourmaline Sunangels were common in the garden. With a suitable light, this hummer is spectacular! We only saw males.
A bad photo of a great bird. This male Collared Inca was, indeed, spectacular.
Both males and females White-bellied Woodstars avoided the more crowded feeders, perhaps because of its tiny size. The males produce an audible hmmmm... just like a big bee.
The Green Violetears reminded me western Panama. We also saw Sparkling Violetears, allowing great side-by-side comparisons.
The Fawn-breasted Brilliant only often showed its pink breast feathers. It should not be confused with the next species.
P.D.: if you want to know the full story of my first birding trip to Colombia, read Birding in Colombia and then just follow the linked text at the end of each post. Enjoy!
