Little brown Jasper posing! LBJ nş3

By annettep38  
Well believe it or not, this one is really easy to identify even if you are pretty useless at music like me. The song of the Turdus grayi or yigüirro or mirlo pardo is just wonderful. Hence, like our nightingale it is very popular for its musical talent.
the yigüirro is the national bird of Costa Rica and qualifies well as LBJ.

Many thanks for your highly entertaining comments to the border control. The prize goes to Mollycat for Emiliano Zapata, but Mick Bee's was also very funny and fitting.
Mexico is the name of a border village on the Costa Rican - Nicaraguan border Smile
The thing is real but looks far more serious on the Nicaraguan side, Kalashnikov and all that.

Top of the class for you, Annette,
The Nightingale, at a diminutive 6" (15cm) definitely qualifies as an LBJ Grin
But you are a little smarty-pants for actually identifying it..!!
I love the image. As Lynne says, 'naturally framed by BBB's' (She's just getting her own back..!)
