Bird Photography Weekly

The birding in Costa Rica is legendary, with Toucans, Parrots, Motmots, Trogons and Oropendolas.  But the thing I could not get enough of, were the Hummingbirds.  We saw 27 species of Hummingbirds in the 10 days we were there.  This Green Violet-ear is a highland bird.  I love him posed nicely against the terracotta pots.   Have you been to Costa Rica?

    This looks adorable. What camera did you use? Have you bought one afer you mentioned that you are in the market to buy one?

    No I haven’t been to CR.

  4. Yes, I’ve been to CR, and my hummer count was about the same as yours. Fantastic place.

    Was this taken at Savegre? That patio looks familiar.

  5. Nate, You hit the nail on the head. It was taken at Savegre. You have an amazing eye for detail!
