These were all photographed yesterday, July 5, along with the Sunbittern shown yesterday. Several were made before breakfast at Wayne’s house including the two different Woodcreepers. He too is a retiree from church-related work (Adventist) who loves birds and his house here in the forest near Rancho Naturalista might have more birds than the lodge with even more feeders. A really nice guy.

I also made photos of several bird nests which I will show in another post, plus flowers, scenery, and other animals for future posts. So like most trips it will keep on giving blog posts.  🙂

And the new species will soon be added to my Costa Rica Birds Photo Gallery where there are already photos of 223 species of birds in Costa Rica, and soon to be about 235 or more!

¡Pura Vida!
