If Talamanca Hummingbird sounds unfamiliar, that's probably because you know it as Magnificent Hummingbird -- which was recently split into two species: Rivoli's Hummingbird (found from Arizona to Nicaragua) and Talamanca Hummingbird, found only in Costa Rica and a bit of western Panama.

A lovely view of Two Foot Bay, Barbuda, by our intrepid Lesser Antilles guide Jesse Fagan. One would hardly guess that in September 2017, Hurricane Irma -- the strongest storm on record to exist in the open Atlantic -- struck this island as a Category 5 storm, demolishing virtually every structure and forcing the evacuation of all residents to Antigua.
Remarkably, and thankfully, the endemic Barbuda Warbler (Setophaga subita) survived the effects of Hurricane Irma, and we had great looks at this lovely bird on this year's tour. Photograph by guide Jesse Fagan.
