I photographed this Talamanca Hummingbird while in Costa Rica. Very large for a hummingbird; size alone separates from many other species. Distinctive in range. Males are green overall; head appears black until it hits the light and reveals an iridescent purple crown and turquoise throat. Females duller with fuzzy mottled appearance on grayish underparts and some greenish on sides. Note the large white spot behind the eye that trails into a messy eye line. Females have a longer and slightly more de-curved bill than males.
