I retrapped a site faithful wintering bird here in 2013, see A first !...and golden-winged finale in Costa Rica for details....
This is the Highlands habitat they enjoy.
These warblers winter in mixed flocks with resident warblers, redstarts, vireos etc. They seem to like the forest edge and the lightly wooded dairy pastures, the main feature of our habitat outside primary forest.
Black and White Warblers are often in the flocks too.
Yellow-winged Vireo, an endemic to Costa Rica and Panama Highlands.
We were back in our primary forest site yesterday and ....
Wendy and I were stunned to find the first, and when Yuly came back yesterday saying that she had just found another...amazement.
Tomorrow if the rain stops....our final visit to Lake, then on Wednesday our last session in the forest. Hopefully when we return in 2016, two further standard banding sites may be open, to complement the three currently in use here at Madre Selva in the Highlands.
