I've heard the ruby-throated hummingbird is found in Bolivia.  Is it true?  Migration maps show only down to Costa Rica.?

    They spend the winter in Central America, as far south as Panama. Since they are only there looking for food, they can potentially go farther south if needed if they cannot find food. So, if someone saw one of them in Bolivia, it would not be surprising. The distribution of animals is not fixed. Range maps can expand or shrink due to many different factos, including habitat and climate changes.
