Baird’s Trogon

Baird’s Trogon: Danta Corcovado Lodge, Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica — Continuing our tour of Costa Rica’s trogons, we found this female Baird’s Trogon while looking at both a male Slaty-tailed Trogon and a young Spectacled Owl buried in the same patch of understory, only a few yards from each other. Too much excitement! The Baird’s female is very like the female Slaty-tailed but with much more pattern on the tail and with the grey hood coming lower on the chest. Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode with multi-frame noise reduction. Processed in Pixomator Photo and Apple Photos. Equivalent ISO 3200 @ f4 @ 1/500th. Not an easy shot with the foreground obstructions. 🙂
