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.

Do the parrots speak Spanish?

Ralph said...

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!

Costa Rica looks like paradise and your bird photos are stunning. Anything that green and cute just has to be noisy!
Great choice for Ruby Tuesday too.

Costa Rica is such a beautiful, lush environment - and supposrts such a wonderful array of birds - which you got some really great photos of!
We must have been in the county at about the same time, but we didn't make it to Tortuguero (this time)

Looking forward to more of your photos!
