Phaethornis guy


This was a new species for me and I worked hard to get a shot away from the feeders. When they were not visiting a feeder, they perched deep in thick vegetation. I saw one nectar a flower and set up to watch the flowers for about 45 minutes without a return. With so many feeders available, they did not spend much time at flowers.
