Black-billed Nightingale-Thrush

It was cold and windy and rather damp on the Paramo when we visited, in the mountains above San Gerardo de Dota, Costa Rica, and we got only glimpses of the target birds…Volcano Junco and Timberline Wren…but some of us got great looks at this Black-billed Nightingale-Thrush. The Nightingale-Thrush is a common bird of forest edges in the highlands, so this one was at the upper end of its elevation range. Not a tree in sight, let alone a forest.
