Blue-crowned Motmot

I'm "on the road again" in connection with my work, and today I'm in Costa Rica. I had a chance this afternoon to walk around the hotel grounds, and among other colorful birds, I was excited to find two Blue-crowned Motmots. I enjoyed much better views this time than I did 36 years ago when I saw my first one in Mexico. Also on my walk, I was able to approach this White-ringed Flycatcher to within about 20 ft. as it watched for insect prey in the hotel garden.
