Orange-chinned Parakeet

Orange-chinned Parakeet: Donde Cope, Guapiles, Costa Rica — Visitors come and go, year to year, at Cope’s home in Guapiles, and I do not mean just the human visitors. This year he has several new visitors, or new to me in the many years I have been spending an afternoon at Cope’s on one of my Costa Rica Rain and Cloud Forest trips. And the sloths that have spent them there in the past seem to be gone. These days he has both a Pygmy and a Green Kingfisher coming to the old tilapia pond, though never at the same time, and he also has a good sized flock of Orange-chinned Parakeets. If you look closely at two of those photos, you and actually see the orange chin. Not easy to see. Sony Rx10iv various zoom settings to frame the bird. Program mode with multi-frame noise reduction.
