|Black Chinned Hummer|
|Broad Billed Hummer|
Panama, I had a blast filming them in the rain forest. The hard part, however, comes from distinguishing the blues and greens from each other. The males and females are very different and many of them can appear similiar. A birder told me that many times, it comes down to the throat coloring. Tricky tricky.
To conclude, I have yet to find the Plain-capped Starthroat, Green Violet-Ear, Lucifer, Violet-Crowned(this one comes to my garden in June and July), Berylline, Buff-bellied, White-eared, Blue-throated, Magnificent(this one should be easy), Ruby Throated, Calliope, Broad-tailed, Rufous, and Allen's hummingbird. There have been reports of the Rufous in Florida canyon....a place I have yet to explore.
Stay tuned for more from this series......
