Every so often someone will ask which bird or birds are my favorite. I never have an answer for this question when it's asked, but later when I think about it, I feel like my answer is flycatchers and shorebirds.
Nevertheless, on my trip to Costa Rica at the end of January and 1st week in February, I fell for the little Snowcap (Microchera albocoronata). I really love its latin name. So accurately descriptive.
This is one constantly moving bird and good photos with a point and shoot ... well, forget it. Doesn't matter - these are the best of the many I took.

I think that seeing a Snowcap ranks as a must see experience. Okay, okay so that's over the top ... but it's a great bird.
