Costa's Hummingbird

Costa's Hummingbird


This small hummingbird, the Costa's Hummingbird, is named after French nobleman Louis Marie Pantaleon Costa, Marquis de Beauregard.

 

This unique hummingbird has a spectacular courtship ritual in which the male Costa's hummingbird performs an amazing show for the female Costa's hummingbird in hopes of attracting her as a mate.
