Our two birds for this POW were taken in the small town of Caracol, near Rio Claro. The great husband and wife team of Yeimiri Badilla and Marilin Saldana brought us these amazing photos.
Photo #1: You should recognize this bird from all of our San Vito Bird Club publications, t-shirts and coffee mugs; it is the Turquoise Cotinga! Taken in their front yard.
Photo #2: Taken in the palm plantations near Caracol. Palm oil plantations often contain a surprising variety of bird species. This young Striped Owl was probably in search of small rodents who feed on the palm nuts.
