Black-bellied Hummingbird

Black-bellied Hummingbird. La Paz Waterfall Gardens, Costa Rica

Our first stop in Costa Rica, after the wonderful grounds of the Bougainvillea Hotel outside San Jose, was the La Paz Waterfall Gardens up on the rim of the central highlands. The Gardens are famous for waterfalls and birds, but they also have many of the mammals of Costa Rica in enclosures, and a large butterfly house. Of course, hummingbirds are their speciality. We saw a dozen species easily around their feeders. This is the Black-bellied Hummingbird, among the new species for me. An elegant little fellow. 🙂 Sony Rx10iii at 600mm equivalent.
