Blue bird

Our guidebook describes Costa Rica as "Nirvana for bird watcher."  We have more species of birds than the USA and Canada combined, and we are the size of West Virginia or Switzerland.

I think this is a blue tanager.  I am not a birder, but I enjoy watching our colorful and plentiful birds.

We have new photos of the colonial architecture of Grenada, Nicaragua posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week.

You composed the photo of this lovely bird perfectly. It is really beautiful and looks like it was just waiting to be photographed and to be admired!

Good shot! I think it might be the "blue bird of happiness"!
