Olive-crowned Yellowthroat (Geothlypis semiflava) -a male bird photographed near Bijagua, N.E. Guanacaste, Costa Rica in July 2008.

Not the best of images but it will suffice till something better comes along!

Poor Judge of Pasta.
This is a Grey-crowned Yellowthroat I'm afraid. Olive-crowned has a much finer, black bill, more extensive black mask and greener crown. (The colour of the crown on this bird is not easy to see, but looks grey to me.)

Sorry!

Woops.
I saw quite a few Grey-crowned Yellowthroats prior to this bird & thought this one looked different. I convinced myself that the mask was more extensive but having noted your comments I can see I'm wrong. Thanks for pointing this out.
