About half of the 60 or so bird photos from our trip to Costa Rica consist of still image taken with a Canon ZR65MC digital video camera. The rest are freeze frame images extracted from digital video clips; those are marked with "(VIDEO)." Exclamation marks (!) denote the best bird photos, in terms of image quality and/or attractiveness of the subject.
