Fiery-throated Hummingbird

Panterpe insignis insignis

 

Hotel Georgina, Villa Mills, San José province, Costa Rica.

 

The brilliant feathers on the throat are visible only from a very tiny angle. This individual did not show much of that even at the right angle, making me think it was a female or juvenile. This species is almost endemic to Costa Rica, but makes it into extreme western Panama.
