Rufous-collared Sparrow (Zonotrichia capensis)

Any bird-watcher who has travelled in Central or South America will have encountered the Rufous-collared Sparrow (Zonotrichia capensis) many times-probably almost to the point of ignoring it! But that’s not fair, as it really is a beautiful sparrow! This photo was taken near the Savegre hotel in Costa Rica.
