Title: Mangrove Hummingbird On Nest
Location: Isla de Coiba, Veraguas, Panama, Central America
Description: One of the world’s smallest birds found on Central America’s largest island, Coiba Island, made our guide Jose nearly fall out of the skiff with excitement. I was hosting a photo themed cruise with UnCruise Adventures between Panama and Costa Rica on the Pacific side when our smaller Zodiac nestled into a mangrove thicket for a close look.
Little did I know that this particular type of humming bird is rarely seen on its nest. Another guest, with a different angle, was able to take a photo with a few eggs in the nest showing.
