You can hear them hovering past your ear, maneuvering acrobatically into all directions and when you spot them they are already on the next flower: the hummingbird is one of a kind.
All over Central America these beautiful birds can be seen, feeding themselves on the nectar of flowers with their characteristic long beak and tongue. Close to the entrance of the Monte Verde cloud forest of Costa Rica, one can observe these colibris more closely in the hummingbird garden.
