Swallow-tailed Kite with Gecko

Golfito, which is near the Panama border at the most southern part of Costa Rica, was an important port at the beginning of the twentieth century. This was due to the extensive production of the United Banana Company in the area. It declined after the demise of the company in 1985 but has increasingly become a tourist attraction.

The road going north from the town produced Swallow-tailed Kite, Black-mandibled Toucan, Purple-crowned Fairy, Panama Flycatcher, White-throated Thrush, Slaty-tailed Trogon, Royal and Sandwich Terns, Chestnut-sided Warbler, Grayish Saltator, Blue-crowned Motmot, Lesser Nighthawk, and Blue Ground-Dove.

  1. Bonjour,
    je suis l’éditeur responsable de la revue Aviornis international Wallonie-Bruxelles (Belgique). Nous sommes en train de mettre en page un article sur la colombe cendrée (Blue ground-dove) mais nous manquons de photos. Accepteriez-vous que l’on publie des photos de la colombe concernée qu’on retrouve sur votre site? Suivant vos conditions, nous indiquerons votre nom ou votre site en dessous de chaque photo publiée.
    Auriez-vous d’autres belles photos de cette colombe?

    Merci d’avance pour l’attention que vous nous accordez.
