White-tipped Sicklebill

One of the very special birds we saw in Cope’s yard on our afternoon visit, was the White-tipped Sicklebill, a relatively rare hummingbird in the Sarapique region of Costa Rica. It kept to deep shadows, which I suspect is its normal behavior. We saw it several times, in different places in the yard, always deep in and dark. I was able to catch a few shots using the Sony Rx10iii’s Anti-motion Blur mode. Nominal Exposure: 1/20th @ f4 @ ISO 1600 (impossible without Anti-motion blur).
