The black-crested coquette is such an outstanding bird. These tiny fluffy creatures have a hairstyle of a fashionista, a slicked-back. They dye it with glossy green, making them so attractive.

Black-crested Coquette birds are a species of hummingbird in the Trochilidae family. They are endemic to many Central American countries, including, Costa Rica, Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, and Nicaragua.

These precious flying gemstones prefer living in subtropical, tropical moist lowland forests, moist montanes, and heavily degraded former forested areas. They are commonly found along the rainforest edge.

They feed mainly on nectar taken from a wide variety of brightly colored, scented small flowers on trees, herbs, shrubs, and epiphytes. The male of this species is highly aware of their feeding territories and chases away other males as well as large insects.

During the breeding season, female birds build their nests in a protected shrub or tree, about 1 – 5 m from the ground. This nest is in the shape of a cup and is made from plant fibers, green moss, and spider web. They then lay 2 eggs in their nest and incubate them for around 12 days. They continue to feed the chicks until fully-fledged, around 20 days.

She lays a clutch of up to two white eggs which she incubates for about the first week or two and left alone even on cooler nights after about 12 days – probably due to the small nest size. The chicks leave the nest when they are about 20 days old.
