Still, 25 March 2014 in Costa Rica. After the Tarcoles river and lowlands close to that river, in the afternoon to higher hilly country, with fine views of these lowlands and the Pacific ocean beyond.
15:11: a king vulture flying.
A brown jay.

Talking with a Pale-billed Woodpecker
16 November 2011
Magnificent and elusive, the Campephilus woodpeckers include the Ivory-billed and Imperial woodpeckers, which may be extinct, and the Pale-billed Woodpecker, which still haunt[s] the forests of Costa Rica today. Join the experience as scientists Martjan Lammertink and Chris Saker search for this little-known species in a tropical forest, using a wooden “double-knocker” as their most valuable device.
There was a female as well.
Then, a striped cuckoo.
It was calling on a branch.
As we walked down, along the road a chestnut-mandibled toucan; the biggest toucan species of Costa Rica.
As light for photography worsened as it was getting late, a smaller toucan relative: a fiery-billed aracari.
It became still darker. But we could still see a female lineated woodpecker, enlarging a hole in a tree for nesting.
Still darker. A chestnut-backed antbird.
