Abstract

I present the first confirmed record of the Sapphire-throated Hummingbird (Lepidopyga coeruleogularis) at Punta Banco, southwestern Costa Rica. An adult male was seen and photographed perched on a twig at the border of a second growth forest tract. This observation extends the geographic distribution of this species from northern Colombia to southwestern Costa Rica.
