Green-breasted Mango males have a green breast with a dark stripe which looks black when not brightly lit. Their beautiful magenta tail is unmistakeable.
They breed from Mexico to Costa Rica, preferring savannas and coffee plantations. They often catch insects in midair. In Panama they are replaced by the Veraguan Mango.
They are about 4 1/2 inches long and weigh 1/4 of an ounce.
