A male talamanca hummingbird feeds on nectar in the Costa Rican highlands. These high Andean cloud forests are paradises for brightly colored hummingbirds.
The talamanca hummingbird was called the magnificent hummingbird, until that species was split into two. Rivoli’s hummingbird lives in the northern half of the former “magnificent” range, and the talamanca lives in the south, from Costa Rica to Panama.
