Green Honeycreeper

Green Honeycreeper, Dave and Daves Costa Rican Nature Park, Costa Rica

This is another shot from Dave and Dave’s Costa Rican Nature Park in La Vergin, Costa Rica. Dave the father, and Dave the son, have created an ideal habitat for the birds of the lowland rainforest, and have set up their feeding stations to provide photographers with natural portraits of the birds that frequent the property. Vines with banana slices surround a covered patio so even on rainy days the photography is excellent. This is a male Green Honeycreeper. The female is actually the green bird. The three speicis of Honeycreepers in Costa Rica are three more of the amazing number of tropical Tanagers. Sony Rx10iii at 600mm equivalent. Program mode. 1/250th @ f4 @ ISO 1600.
