Banded Blue-throated Goldentail (Hylocharis eliciae)

Posted on Dec 15, 2014

While editing images from this weekend I noticed something on this Blue-throated Goldentail (Hylocharis eliciae). It was banded, and you can see the metal band we used last year. We haven’t started banding Hummingbirds yet this year – thus it must be at least two years old. It’s one of the smaller of the eleven species that visits the feeders here at Finca.
