Blue Dacnis

Some of the best pictures that I got in Costa Rica were of the male and female Blue Dacnis.  Here’s the male.

 

 

It took me awhile to identify him because he has more of a mask than the bird in the field guide.  Also, he has more green and the field guide shows him as all royal blue.  I found a tumblr where the male looks a lot more like the field guide picture in some of the photos.

 

 

 

The female is made up of the green that is hinted at in the male’s breast.

 

This picture is really cool because of the bird on the left diving next to the female Blue Dacnis.  I’m not actually sure what bird it is, maybe a honeycreeper?
