After many tries, I finally connected with the friendliest Zeledonia in Costa Rica. Instead of sticking with the usual hyperactive skulking Zeledonia agenda, this gem of a bird hopped right up into the open and sang away right in front of us. I have seen quite a few of this odd warbler thing but this sighting was the best by far!

Wow, impressive open sighting and picture indeed Patrick. Gorgeous picture of a little bird that is most always a mega skulker. Awesome!!!!!!!

Thanks for the comments. This Zeledonia was thankfully very accommodating!
