This is the Volcano hummingbird which is found at the higher elevations. Its an interesting species because of the variants in gorget colour found in different valleys in Costa Rica.
We spent a fair amount of time sorting the right colours for each variant/race.
From left to right.
Talamanca Cordillera race, Poas and Barva race, Irazú & Turrialba race. Female which is the same for all three races.
