The grounds of La Selva lodge are a good place to do some birding as they provide an opening in the jungle. Not too many species venture out of the forest into the gardens though, and flyovers are more the rule. The roof of the main reception/dining/lounge building (shown as seen from the lake in the previous post) does have an observation balcony just beneath the roof, but you need a long lens. I managed to get some reasonable photos of the following...

Blue-grey Tanager



Boat-billed Flycatcher



Crested Oropendola



Russet-backed Oropendola



Silver-beaked Tanager, this one a male



Piratic Flycatcher



female Thick-billed Euphonia



male Rufous-bellied Euphonia



Tropical Screech Owl



and a familiar face in Striated (Green-backed) Heron

Not doing too badly yourself with your latest lifers. Green Twinspot, Barratt's Warbler and Buff-spotted Flufftail are all missing from my Home Life List :mrgreen:

Awesome photos. On coming holiday seasons we are going for having cruise there even already book a ship through a site as Dealsgalapagos.com. Hope I can see these types of beautiful birds at there.

Oooo...love the heron shot. The contrast in textures between the bird and the water and the contrast in colours really caught my eye. Thanks for posting.
