Rivoli's Hummingbird (Eugenes fulgens)

Rivoli's Hummingbird
Powdered: Hummingbirds are important pollinators in the Neotropics; they feed on nectar and in return they carry pollen between flowers. The pollen of some flowers is especially sticky, making hummingbirds appear with a plumage color aberration, such as this female Rivoli's Hummingbird (Eugenes fulgens) with a golden powdered forehead – seen in the woods of Antigua Guatemala.
