Can you tell me what this little guy is. I’m thinking maybe an immature Ruby Topaz.

Someone there called it a brown hummingbird. I just got back from Bonaire Saturday.

Had a great time birding and “fishing” (snorkeling).

Yes, Linda, this is a female or immature Roby-topaz Hummingbird. Very nice.

Thank you for sending this along to us.

Good (Bonaire) Birding,

Allison and Jeff Wells
