Birding in Costa Rica (5) – simply cuties

The feeder with papaya and banana were taken over by the big birds. The little guy Rufus-naped Warbler was peeking and waiting patiently. 

The shining skin makes it look like a porcelain Strawberry Frog. The ‘carpet’ underneath is actually a patch of dry grass with brown spots in the jungle. Pictures can be deceiving sometimes, but most of the time is for the good cause.

At least a dozen shots were taken for this cute Collard Redstar. He was there for a good ten minutes and jumping all over the place.

I love the shot of this White-Collard Manakin .¬†Wish he was closer and I don’t have to remove so much noise. The image gets a bit soft after noise reduction. Besides Motmot, Manakin is my another favorite.
