Coppery-headed Emerald

Can someone please confirm this to be a Coppery-headed Emerald? Taken near Racho Naturalista Costa Rica in January.
Thanks
Chris

Crowned Woodnymph ? I'm out of touch with CR birds, so take with a pinch of salt

But be very wary of that. There is never any guarantee that the image you have found in google is correctly identified.
