BIRDS OF COSTA RICA CARDS



Just a couple of cards from Sweetie's photos of Costa Rica nature.




There are 50 species of hummingbirds in Costa Rica and Sweetie saw quite a few.  This handsome fellow is the Fiery-throated Hummingbird.











This is a Red-rumped Trogon (I think).  I like the black body with the bits of bright red on it.  Can't find it in any of the small, travel books of Costa Rica Birds, though.  Could it be their version of a Red-winged Blackbird?



These are on Strathmore blank cards (either watercolor, or mixed media).
