Little brown Joe's serenade.

By annettep38  
Specially for Simon: Nš1 brown birdie. picture nš is the whole image.
I have no idea what he is called, he is the size of a large hummingbird or a goldcrest, very good singer and lives generally in the Guanacaste grasslands.

Not easy to get a picture btw.
Oh had to say this.. many thanks for all your funny comments on the bronze lady Smile

Aaah, yes, most definitely falls into the LBJ category of birdlife, Annette Grin
I imagine its song decries its size. LBJ's generally being the noisiest of birds.
Not having any bird books on Costa Rican birds, I apologise for not being able to assist with an ID.
Suffice to say, LBJ about sums it up - although your pano works very well for anyone who knows these birds.

It's a serenade in disguise. He's sitting on a prison wall singing in code; relaying the movement of the guards so his buddy can bust out.

Superb timing getting this, Annette.

Let's hope Joe's buddy gets his timing right. He shouldn't be in there. He was set up by the Mynah family. That's the way it is when you run in seedy circles. You end up a jailbird sooner or later.
