Unusual one. Stood on a rocky hill for hours for this one. Well worth it. Great behavior this species displays, too.

Lesser ground cuckoo, Costa Rica

Very nice..., they are in my neighborhood, but very shy and I havenĀ“t any decent shots of them..., yet...;o))

Many thanks, Bjarne - comments much appreciated :-)
- the UK birds have nearly finished their moult, so the red head plumage should be even more pronounced over the next few weeks. Hope you get some nice shots yourself!

Now THAT is one of the coolest birds I've seen in a while! How much mosquito repellent did you have to use? I still see retirement outside of the USA as the only viable way unless you got in early on the asset bubble.

Funny enough i didn't use any mosquito repellent because i was afraid the DEET would harm the camera and lenses a local person told me to use lemongrass and Apple Cider Vinegar and Garlic
for me it worked well.


A camera is a tool for learning how to see without a camera.

I was lucky enough to get a picture of this red-tailed hawk this morning.

Very dull day when I came across a fairly friendly peacock. The low light and plain sky made things difficult, so I concentrated on its plumage.
