Pied Puffbird

Pic for today: Pied Puffbird
Pied Puffbird: La Selva Biological Station, Costa Rica — Maybe the best bird, or at least best bird sighting, of our visit to the Organization for Tropical Studies, La Selva Biological Station, was this Pied Puffbird, that came down and sat for us at about 15 feet and eye-level. They almost never perch that low, and this one gave us quite a show. Sony Rx10iv at 468mm equivalent. Program mode with Multi-frame Noise Reduction (not because I needed it for this shot, but because I was shooting mostly under the canopy where it was needed). Processed in Polarr, Pixomator Photo Pro, and Apple Photos. Equivalent ISO 640 @ f4 @ 1/500th
