This video says about itself:
Filmed at Selva Verde Lodge in Costa Rica, this Nikon’s BATV episode features the plight of the Great Green Macaw.
A list of birds at Selva Verde is here.
Costa Rica, 16 March 2014.
After yesterday, we were near the Sarapiqui river.
At 4:50 the sound of mantled howler monkeys woke me up.
An orange-billed sparrow after getting up.
From the bus: a great-tailed grackle. A great kiskadee on a wire.
Near the entrance of La Selva Biological Station: a chestnut-sided warbler on a tree. A species, nesting in North America and wintering here.
In other trees, a green honeycreeper. A pied puffbird.
A boat-billed flycatcher.
A masked tityra couple. On the photo, the male on the left; the female on the right.
A golden-hooded tanager.
A buff-throated saltator cleans its feathers.
So does a social flycatcher.
A group of red-lored parrots in yet another tree.
In the same tree, a juvenile Baltimore oriole cleans its feathers.
Keel-billed toucans. The second biggest toucan species in Costa Rica.
A crested guan.
On wires: greyish saltator. A female shiny cowbird. A tropical kingbird. A grey-capped flycatcher.
Two mangrove swallows.
A northern rough-winged swallow flying.
A rufous-tailed hummingbird.
In a tree, a long-tailed tyrant. A plain-coloured tanager cleans its feathers.
A small flock of chestnut-headed oropendolas flies past.
On a branch, a tropical pewee.
Bananaquit. Variable seedeater.
A green iguana in a tree.
A slaty-tailed trogon couple nests in a termite nest in a tree close to the entrance. The birds are enlarging their nest. The termites don’t mind them. After the resplendent quetzal, slaty-tailed trogons are among the biggest trogon species.
A band-backed wren. The bird on the photo was banded for research.
In a tree, a brown-throated three-toed sloth with a baby.
A broad-winged hawk flying.
Near a bridge across the river, greater white-lined bats resting.
A collared peccary on a lawn on the other side.
And a collared aracari in a tree.
And the biggest woodpecker species of Costa Rica: a pale-billed woodpecker.
A much smaller bird: an olive-backed euphonia.
There were not only birds, but also reptiles and amphibians there. So, stay tuned!
