Below a few more photos from the Rancho trip, I am just editing stuff from Sandra which has, some scenery and some nice bird shots which I’ll post later.
Collared Aracari again.
Blue-Gray Tanager, common.
Baltimore Oriole – very common.
Broad-winged Hawk, this and Short-tailed Hawk were the two common hawks in Costa Rica.
Collared Trogon at Rancho Naturalista
Common Tody Flycatcher – busy, busy, busy.
Female White-necked Jacobin.
Band-tailed Pigeon eating a Gobstopper
Violet Sabrewing, they rarely sit in the open.
Rufous-capped Warbler, visited the Rancho garden daily.
Scintillant Humingbird female.
A typical view of the male Snowcap as it races around the flowers.
Yellow-bellied flycatcher, the commonest empid at Rancho.
Spot-breasted Oriole. This dry lowland species should not have been on a coffee farm (Finca Christina) in the CentralValley but was, perhaps indicative of the effect the’mini’ El Nino was having on some species.
Green-breasted Mango – male.
