Costa Rica hummingbirds and other mountain birds


Green violetear hummingbird

This beautiful green violetear hummingbird was photographed on 15 March 2014, between the Poas volcano and the Atlantic coast of Costa Rica.

On 15 March 2014, we left Alajuela in Costa Rica. From there, we went first to the Poas volcano.

Great-tailed grackles along the way.

Walking to the Poas crater, mountain elenias sang.
