The Charming Hummingbird used to known as the Beryl-crowned Hummingbird until naming authorities opted for personality over appearance. It has a small range but is pretty common in humid forest on southwestern Costa Rica. It was the most common hummingbird species at Esquinas Rainforest Lodge.

Thanks for the comments. This bird was quite common and easy to capture at Esquinas Rainforest Lodge.
