Brief Summary

Read full entry

The White-crested Coquette (Lophornis adorabilis) is a residential bird, endemic to Costa Rica and Western Panama. They tend to stay high up in the canopy, but come down to forest edges and gardens from time to time to feed off of Inga, Vochysia, Lonchocarpus and Stachytarphets flowers (Stiles, and Skutch 1989). They also have been seen feeding off flowers of cashew trees, Anacardium (Fogden and Fogden 2005). When they emerge from the canopy and come to ground level, they can be very confiding, allowing approach within touching distance (Fogden and Fogden 2005).
