Pretty birds, Ed. They look like cousins of the Bee-eaters.

They are grouped with the bee eaters, rollers and the kingfishers taxonomically. I had never seen one until this trip and we got two species at once!! I immediately fell in love with them. We saw them at the same lodge several days in a row in several locations. One pair was digging a nest hole in the side of the muddy road, so they have that red Costa Rica mud on their beaks in all the photos.

Another from the canoe. I think a vast majority of my decent trip shots were from that
boat. It was always leaking but for some reason I packed a dry bag and it came in real handy for whatever I wasn't holding.
Anyway a Toucan. Archibald this is a 'fake' sky in that SOOC is was crap-grey. I slid the dehaze slider and worked the temp/saturation sliders to calm some of the grey down.
Now it's posted up I see the white sharpening halo around the bird, oh well.

Nice shot, this is a keel-billed toucan. We were hoping to see these in Costa Rica but did not. We did have a family of chestnut-mandibled toucans visit our lodge daily, they were pretty awesome and very photogenic (and they knew it-I have literally hundreds of impossibly good photos, an embarassment of riches). We also had a family of collared aracaris visit daily. Comical birds, very raucous.

Great toucan portrait! I guess the critters don't see the boat as a threat.

Beautiful! Who is this guy, Peter? I've never seen one before. Quite the comical looking fellow. But stunning as well. :-)

Thank you.
Surf Scoter Melissa and they shows up in Washington during winter. They also have square white in the back of their head. So pretty.
