Costa Rica ID's/Confirmations - 10/02 (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
First day in Costa Rica has been a bit over-whelming with lifers come left, right and centre! Would appreciate some help with the ID's for these 5, though don't hold back from saying if the photos are too poor for an ID! All taken in Alajuela.

1 - Grey-breasted Martin?
2 - Unsure on this female seedeater/sparrow species.
3 - Awful view but is there enough to tell between Green and Amazon from this pic? Wasn't able to get a side view to see back/tail.
4 - Greenish Elania?
5 - Blue-black Grosbeak?

Grey-breasted Martin
Morelet's seedeater (ex-white-collared seedeater)
Make green kingfisher (greenish marks beneath brown band)
Greenish elaenia
(Probably) variable seedeater (even though bill seems pale in the photo)
