Selasphorus in Cerro Hoya, a report by Kees Groenendijk
Based on the color of the gorget of the male, closer to purple than to red, we assume that these are Glow-throated Hummingbirds, which would be consistent with an earlier observation by Francisco Delgado. To our knowledge, this is the first time since the reports by Delgado that this hummingbird has been seen in the Cerro Hoya. [There have been other records by University of Panama/STRI expeditions to the area; manuscript submitted for publication —DM].
