Costa Rica (Pavones area) Aug, 2012 (1 Viewer)


Going through old photos and these two from Costa Rica in August of 2012 won't go into ebird as the species I have labelled them as without having to add a specie to the suggested list. Just wanting to have more opinions before I add a specie to the ebird suggested list.

Thanks so much

Well-known member
The flycatcher is piratic flycatcher (golden-bellied is very different. See for example back colour; there would be no hints of wing bars as here). Suggest the dove is male ruddy ground-dove
The 2 trogons are female Gartered Trogons: e.g. white eye rings, black central patches on barred tail undersides.
