Fiery Throated Hummingbird
Seen in the same area of feeders next to Paraiso Quetzal lodge. These small hummingbirds are very territorial and chase away hummingbirds of even bigger size that are less aggressive. They protect both their females and their food source, hence the name fiery. This pic was selected by National Gegraphic as their Pic of The Day August 14, 2014 in The Great Nature Project. http://greatnatureproject.org/collections
