Chestnut-breasted Coronet Waiting by a Feeder San Isidro has a wonderful terrace with several hummingbird feeders and there are hummingbirds there at almost any time of day. One could easily just sit there and enjoy the show. These little fellows were quite territorial about the feeders but ended up spending a lot of time chasing other hummingbirds away, only to have still others start feeding the second that they were gone.
