Costa Rica birds..Part three

The Red Lored parrot was one of the common birds I saw while in Costa Rica. It is not a common bird for me I thought they were pretty cool. It was neat to see groups of them fly in and make all kind of noises. Their plumage is primarily green but with a red forehead. Their food is fruit, nuts and seeds.





This is also my entry for Outdoor Wednesday and Nature Notes.  Thanks to Susan and Michelle for hosting these fun memes.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and to see more great photos visit Mary's Ruby Tuesday Thanks, Mary.

  4. This bird seems to utilize red as a stylish detail, a little red on bill and wing truly goes a long way in this distinctive parrot. Hopefully his chatter sounds as nice as he looks!

Hello, Thanks for stopping by my blog. This is my blog about the birds I see, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. They might not always be the best of photos because I like to keep photos as a record of where and when I see them.
I appreciate all your comments and I will always try to return the favor and visit your blog.

Due to some recent problems I will not be able to publish any comments that include a link. I would appreciate if you do not include any kind of links in your comments. Sorry!
Have a great day, Eileen
