I've just checked my list on Bubo, and I've only seen ten species of Hummingbird - clearly this isn't enough. My field guide to the West Indies has two pages of them, and my guide to Trinidad and Tobago had several more. In both instances though, the number of species on the island that mattered was very small. I really need to go to Trinidad and Costa Rica, either of these places would bump up my paltry total considerably. Trinidad for example has around 17 species, of which 13 would be new. Asa Wright is definitely calling, unfortunately not for some time I suspect. I'll get there though, I'll get there.

If you get to Costa Rica, the Hummingbird Cafe in Monteverde is a must.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful place to visit, really enjoyed looking at your hummingbirds, a stunning set of pictures Jonathan.ReplyDelete
Can't believe you are unhappy with your hummingbird photos Jonathan! Simply stunning.ReplyDelete
Hi Jonathan! I love your photos! One of my favorite places to visit is St. Lucia. Last year (January) I photographed a hummer from behind. The tail was black, low back was light blue or turquoise and the upper back and head was emerald green. What kind of hummer do you think is was? And, do you have an instagram page?ReplyDelete
Superb. Love the Antillean Crested Hummer photos showing the irridesence of the great.ReplyDelete
