I thought the Common Black and Mangrove are the same ? A mangrove is not listed in the Birds of Costa Rica ID book at all.

Sometimes there are days when you get the shot(s) you missed many days, months or years before.

Thanks, Pagman.


I prefer to be in the bush with the animals than a crowded city.

I am so fortunate today to of seen Crossbills, very difficult to see in the UK. They were on Exmoor, Devon.

I am so thrilled....:-)

What amazes me with these lovely birds is that I saw a total of 8, yet they were all different colours, because I know so little about them I am not sure at this stage which ones are males and which ones are females. They resemble small parrots in a way. They were very high up in a Cone tree and would come down to a muddy puddle to have a quick drink. They would stay no more than 15seconds at the puddle and then would disappear. Very shy indeed.

Such beautiful colours, they were that colourful I had to reduce the saturation considerably.
