A visiting photographer from the Czech Republic, Mr. Petr Bambousek, captured a beautiful image of a Long-billed Starthroat feeding on a Coral Bean tree (Erythrina sp.) here at MTCF.

This is bird species number 189 spotted at our reserve and is the 17th hummingbird species recorded.

Petr’s photography is absolutely stunning. He has travelled to some of our planet’s most beautiful natural areas. We were honored that he chose to visit Panama and come to Mount Totumas Cloud Forest. Here is a link to his website where you can see some examples of his photos.


Once he is settled back in the Czech Republic he will be sending us his best photos from his visit.
