I know the Tropical almond only because it is very common on the Island's shores (it means I'm surrounded by it. Concerning the avocado: time to time we are hiking with my daughter into the rain forest to collect some - for freeI second this! I know little about anything, let alone trees!
I wouldn't say "great" - I hate to shoot in such a contrast light, forget the very strong wind. But it's my first nest of this Bulbul (probably because they are hidden in such a mess of branches and grass. And very low - just ~3 feet (~1 meter) above the ground - always (I found this in the literature just yesterday, new knowledge!).A great series of photos ISv!
Based on little bit more research it is most probably the Rufous-backed Wren (Campylorhynchus capistratus) - only this is known for Costa Rica, other two very similar species are from Mexico.Seems likely - a female then? Only a male is shown in my book but even that has quite a few similarities. Thanks.
This is even better photo, the light is +/- fine (I know what can happen when some parts of the bird are underexposed) I'm pretty confident in the second name I posted.
I actually considered that it might be a wren but I'm working with half a deck due to chronic migraines and tedious searching seems to worsen them especially with a computer screen. In other words your help is very much appreciated. Fun to shoot but not so much to cull and ID!This is even better photo, the light is +/- fine (I know what can happen when some parts of the bird are underexposed) I'm pretty confident in the second name I posted.
Agree with the Oriole (but yours has some brown on the face, could be subspecies or different age, I have to read more about it).
BTW, I don't have any literature for this part of the world. I'm just searching the Internet (for me it may be easier - I was almost sure that it's a Wren from Troglodytidae and just searched "Costa Rica wrens").
The plant is guava... The bird looks like Crimson-fronted Parakeet to me. It will help if you have different angle (like underwings?).Thanks click. With the new CR format of likes, in the future rather than posting thanks I'm just going to like the complement - I'm lazy.
Just one more to get it out of the way; I'm trying to be organized and keep track. Poor lighting as usual but you take what comes your way.View attachment 183976
Yes, I recall being told that it's guava and it is the Crimson-fronted. I seem to recall file names being included but I guess that was discontinued some time back. I should have stated it when I posted. As a bird is ID'ed I create its folder and so far I've got 10 birds and will probably exceed 30 which compared to around here would be some feat. Costa Rica was truly amazing. I assume where you are is pretty amazing too!The plant is guava... The bird looks like Crimson-fronted Parakeet to me.

And - yes I'm lazy, it's a beer time for me, I had a busy last week... Sorry!
