Green Thorntail at Cerro Azul

Rosabel Miró and Darién Montañez had brief views of a female Green Thorntail at the gardens of the Kaufmann Cerro Azul Villa. The bird flew across the garden and perched atop a tall tree, facing us, in not-so-good light for a few seconds. Its black throat and belly contrasted strongly with the white malar streaks and flank patches. The stripe across its back was not seen.
