COSTA RICA BIRD PHOTOGRAPHS

COSTA RICA BIRD PHOTOGRAPHS

Many of the following photographs were taken through Swarovski telescopes using various point-and-shoot digital cameras. However, the most recent photos have been taken directly with a Nikon Coolpix P510. Where sexual dimorphism exists, a photo of a female bird is indicated by (f). Most photos are formatted at 880x660 pixels.

Anyone interested in higher resolution images for publication purposes should feel free to contact me to discuss such use.
