And this green-crowned brilliant female.
A black-thighed grosbeak. A species which lives only in the highlands of Costa Rica and western Panama.
Near the feeder: a green violetear hummingbird.
We went higher up the mountain. An oak forest grows there. During the last Ice Age, oak forests covered bigger parts of Costa Rica. as the climate warmed, the oaks retreated to the higher parts of mountains. They developed into endemic species because of their isolation.
An acorn woodpecker.
A black-faced solitaire calls.
Then, on a branch near a stream, a ruddy treerunner. One of many species, limited to Costa Rica and western Panama.
A female barred becard.
A black-cheeked warbler; also limited to Costa Rica and Panama.
A yellow-thighed finch.
And a flame-coloured tanager.
Then, a spot-crowned woodcreeper.
Among the last birds of the morning: sooty-capped bush tanagers; feeding on berries.
And a yellowish flycatcher.
After the morning came, of course, the afternoon. So, stay tuned!
