Tyrant Flycatchers in Costa Rica

Photographs copyright Paul Gale

A large group of birds, some of which are very difficult to identify from each other. Some are very common and widespread, perching conspicuously on roof tops, wires, fences and branches. I photographed at least 15 species of flycatcher. I saw several scissor-tailed flycatchers from the coach. These have very long tail feathers.
