White-necked Jacobin (Florisuga mellivora)

Posted on Jan 3, 2017

Here’s the White-necked Jacobin (Florisuga mellivora) hummingbird, and this photo by RTPI Affiliate Sean Graesser shows where their name comes from. He says he has seen five males at one time at the feeders in Costa Rica despite it being “out of range” for species in the area. RTPI President Twan Leenders says the local eBird reviewers give him a tough time about it…thankfully there is photographic proof!
