Visual Brilliance

“Visual Brilliance”

There are over 330 identified species of hummingbirds making them the second largest bird in the world. The problem with so many species is trying to identify them! 

I went to the Gamboa Rainforest Reserve near the Panama Canal in hopes of finding hummingbirds. I heard a familiar but unfamiliar sound—a hummingbird singing a different song. They were definitely chatty as they buzzed around the flowers of the Calliandra shrub. 

I bought a hummingbird book that contains every species, so I could try and identify them. This little guy is a rufous-tailed hummingbird. If I am wrong, please let me know! I have a few more hummingbirds to research.
