Costa Rican bird photos

Rufous-collared sparrow, 14 March 2014

This is a photo of a rufous-collared sparrow, from 14 March 2014, in Alajuela, Costa Rica.

I must apologize to my readers for the somewhat chaotic order of my blog posts on Costa Rica.

After writing about 15 March, I now go back to 14 March bird photos, taken in Alajuela. Here come some pictures of birds on a flowering tree.
