Video: Fiery-throated Hummingbird

on Sunday, July 3, 2011 

I took this video at Paraiso de Quetzal off of Kilometer 70 near Cerro de la Muerte in central Costa Rica. The feeder setup here had about 50 hummingbirds mobbing the sugar water with a 50/50 mix of Fiery-throated and Magnificent Hummingbirds. This is the first video I am posting shot with my new camera setup through my 100-400mm lens.

Nice video of this living jewel, Tim.
You have captured a wonderful scene!
The colors of these hummingbirds are spectacular.

Warmest Greetings from Spain (Southern Europe).
