Fiery-billed Aracari
(Pteroglossus frantzi)

The fiery-billed aracari can be found on the Pacific side of Costa Rica. It is very similar to the collared aracari except for it's distinct maxilla coloration that is displayed as fiery colors.

Hello Paul,
What a brilliant collared bill. Excellent sharp detailed photo in great clarity and a fine composition.

Une splendide lumière et une dxc sellante profondeur de champ permettant d'apprécier la délicatesse des couleurs et la finesse des détails.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Paul,
This is the same species of bird that I was talking about. The nest was on the left side of the trail as you headed towards the beach. The day I was at Manuel Antonio National Park was June 30th. of 2012.
This is a fantastic shot showing in exceptional detail the unique features and brilliant colors of this gorgeous bird. The ones I tried to photograph stayed very high in the trees and didn't give me any decent looks.

Hey dude, this photo of yours makes on me a feeling that "let's but the f.cking next ticket to Costa Rica and spend two months there"

Should i do that? Costa Rica is on my 2015 bird destinations list however this is my feeling right after your amazing photo!

Indeed, i love it. TFS

Great bird and great portrait. perhaps a bit dark?.
but very well done. Thanks for showing
