Poss Peg-billed Finch, Costa Rica Dec

At Savegre Mountain Lodge. Another id I'm finding problematical. The lower mandible and leg colour is leading me to PBF although the guides say it is quite scarce.
Poor quality shots but hopefully enough detail for any experts out there to help.

thanks alan

Sure it's not a Slaty Flowerpiercer?
Peg-billed Finch is almost always in seeding bamboo.

Definite PbF for me, leg colour is wrong for one thing Andy.

One of my Flowerpiercers attached, note bill colour also.
