More Costa Rica Bird IDs

Recommended Posts

The first bird is a Black-billed Nightingale Thrush. The second one appears to be a Sooty Thrush. My Costa Rica guide shows them as all-black, but everything else fits, and I wouldn't be surprised if youngsters were brown like this.

Thanks for the ID's.   I should have picked up the Nightingale Thrush.  My guide (Garrigues and Dean) has it and the illustration is a pretty good match.  The Sooty Thrush is another matter since the color does not match.  Otherwise it is a good match and the orange beak, orange eye ring, orange legs and pale iris is pretty definitive.  I believe you are right that it is probably a juvenile.
