Hummingbird chaos at Buenaventura Reserve, Ecuador

Oh my, I've been avoiding this cam but finally I decided to try.... and what a chaos of hummingbirds and other rain forest birds was waiting me there. Well, the World Land Trust HumminBird Identication Guide and Gyorgy Szimuly helped me identify some of them:

1.     White-necked Jacobin (Florisuga mellivora)
2.     Sparkling Violetear (Colibri coruscans)
3.     Black-throated Mango (Anthracothorax nigricollis)
4.     Green Thorntail (Discosura conversii)
5.     Velvet-purple Coronet (Boissonneaua jardini)
6.     Bananaquit (Coereba flaveola)
7.     Green Honeycreeper (Chlorophanes spiza)

Below is the first photo. The bird in the left is Bananaquit (Coereba flaveola),big black-headed green one is Green Honeycreeper (Chlorophanes spiza) and the big hummingbird on the right is White-necked Jacobin (Florisuga mellivora).
