Purple-throated mountaingem hummingbird female, Cinchona, 15 March 2014

This is a photo of a female purple-throated mountaingem hummingbird, which we saw 15 March 2014 in Cinchona in Costa Rica. We will get there later in this blog post.

I have described walking in the Poas volcano area in Costa Rica on that 15 March.

As we walked back down, a hummingbird flying around a scrub. It was rather big (I mean, big for a hummingbird …) and looked greenish. We saw mainly its back. Later, we would see this species, the fiery-throated hummingbird, much better, including its splendid colours under favourable lighting.

A slaty flowerpiercer was there as well.

A bit further, in the undergrowth: a wrenthrush. This is a species, unique to Costa Rica and Panama. Also, a large-footed-finch.

Then, lower on the Poas slope, to a garden opposite a restaurant, where feeders attracted hummingbirds.

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
