Manuel Antonio National Park

I caught a bus just outside the hostel in Jaco at mid-day to Quepos. After a leisurely couple of hours in the bus, I made it to Quepos, where I had dinner, watched England beat Tunisia, then jumped on the bus to Manuel Antonio. Very easy.

Rufous-and-white  Wren
Rufous-and-white Wren (Thryophilus rufalbus)

There were a couple of photos left in the camera from the back yard in Jaco. I think this is a Rufous-and-white Wren.

Cherrie's Tanager
Cherrie’s Tanager (Ramphocelus costaricensis)

I took a guess that this was female and immature Cherrie’s Tanager. It is not in my book.

Cherrie’s Tanager (Ramphocelus costaricensis)

And this is the spectacular male Cherrie’s Tanager. Passerini’s Tanager looks exactly the same but is found on the Caribbean coast.

ferruginous pygmy owl (Glaucidium brasilianum)

I think so. But must get some help. Thanks Eitan.

Pale-vented Pigeon
Pale-vented Pigeon (Patagioenas cayennensis)

I thought this was a Red-billed Pigeon. doh!

Again, I need some help to id this.
