Rufous-tailed Hummingbird

Click photo to enlarge

Rufous-tailed Hummingbird drinking nectar nearby the Arenal Volcano in Costa Rica.

Handsome, medium-size hummingbird of humid tropical lowlands. Favours forest edge, second growth, gardens in some areas. Feeds low to high and often comes to feeders. It can be difficult to distinguish from Buff-bellied Hummingbird, which favours drier habitats. Rufous-tailed has a dingier, greyish belly and more extensive rusty on the tail, which lacks the distinct fork often shown by Buff-bellied’s tail. Also, compare Cinnamon Hummingbird.
