The green-crowned brilliant hummingbirds (heliodoxa jacula), also known as the green-fronted brilliant hummingbird, likes the wet mountain forests from Costa Rica to Ecuador with edges, gaps and tall second growth from 2,300 feet to 6,000 feet in altitude.


The ruby-throated hummingbird (archilochus colubris) can be found from the Canadian prairies, almost to the Pacific Coast, down through the eastern United States into Mexico and Central America to Costa Rica, the Caribbean and West Indies. Look for them in open woodlands with forested edges, meadows, grasslands, parks, gardens and backyards.

The white-bellied mountain gem hummingbird (oreopyra hemileucus) can be found in the tropical and subtropical mountain forests of Costa Rica and Panama.

The purple-throated mountain gem hummingbird (lampornis calolaemus) can be found in the mountain cloud forests of Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama.
