The Blue Dacnis or Turquoise Honeycreeper (Dacnis cayana) is a small passerine bird. This member of the tanager family is found from Nicaragua to Panama, on Trinidad, and in South America south to Bolivia and northern Argentina. It is widespread and often common, especially in parts of its South American range.
Finally captured this male, on my latest trip.. what a tough subject to track , and photograph.. Exposing the Iridescent turquoise blue can prove tough to do! A morning photographing these fellows is about as good as it gets!! Just another sample of God's many "Wonders"!! Click on image to darken surrounding canvas!
Consider the joining Juan, and myself for our Costa Rica Photo Tours, both Jan 2014, & May 2014.
