white-tipped sicklebill, Eutoxeres aquila This bill is apparently specially adapted to obtain nectar from the flowers of Heliconia and Centropogon plants. Sicklebills feed by "trap-lining" between favorite plants and, unlike most other hummingbirds, actually perch on the flowers while feeding. White-tipped Sicklebill occurs in the understory of humid forest in foothills and on mountain slopes from Costa Rica south to northern Peru; Panama, Central America, SicklebilW43851xrs.tif
