I didn't take this picture. Our brilliant guide Koky, who I mentioned yesterday, will find something in the cloud forest, pick it out with his bird spotting scope and use a visitor's phone cam to get an amazing shot. This is heavily edited but it came out well enough.
The bird is a resplendent quetzal. It is rarely seen but it was the beginning of mating season and they were more active. We got to see four or five. It's like finding treasure.
I was just in Monteverde cloud forest 3 weeks ago. Probably saw the same Quetzal!
