Identify some birds in Costa Rica

Recommended Posts

These new ones I spotted in an aviary but I am hoping are native to the area. Again appreciate all the help in advance.

26. I think this could fit Green-crowned Brilliant better, just as there isn't much copper in the rump and the tail has a more bluish iridescence. I personally probably can't put a confident ID on it just with the back though. 

29 is a juvenile Green-crowned Brilliant. 

What was the location for #30? It's a female mountain-gem, and they have pretty distinct ranges to help separate them.

32. some kind of Elaenia... probably Yellow-bellied Elaenia, but I'm not confident on that. 

33. Black-and-white Warbler

34. female Summer Tanager I believe

35. Myiarchus species (a genus of flycatchers)... I personally won't be able to identify this. 

36. White-eared Ground-Sparrow

37. Rufous-collared Sparrow
