The Snowy-bellied Hummingbird’s clean white belly and its green chest are diagnostic within its range. Males sing by themselves from perches within trees or shrubs, generally away from flower patches.
The mission of Mount Totumas Cloud Forest Reserve is to protect and preserve the 400 acres of Mount Totumas Cloud Forest that represent an important buffer zone for the wilderness in La Amistad National Park.
