Euphonia Costa Rica (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Good evening,
I have big doubts for these two birds photographed in Casta Rica in January 2022 that I identified like this:

Olive-backed Euphonia photo - Sarapiqui - n°2892 (the first)
White-vented Euphonia - Cano Negro - n°0458 (the second)

Thank you for advance
I think I'd be tempted to say female yellow-throated for both, providing is in range. First is definitely not olive backed which should have rufous vent (this doesn't). Similarly what we can see of the vent for the "white-vented" isn't white (so not that)
