Torrents and Ducks
Living in the most powerful and fast flowing rivers in the Andes.
A few weeks ago, American Bird Conservancy run a pretty nice article featuring one of my images of the Wood Thrush in the tropical Rainforest of Costa Rica.
A couple of weeks ago a few of my Resplendent Quetzals images appeared at the Augsburger Allgemeine, in the Mensch & Tier section. Maybe you saw it in person if you live in the south of Germany.
Raptors are among the most challenging birds to identify in the field due to their bewildering variability of plumage, flight silhouettes, and behavior. Raptors of Mexico and Central America is the first illustrated guide to the region’s 69 species of raptors, including vagrants.
It features 32 stunning color plates and 213 color photos and I was lucky to contribute with several of my own.
Nice to see my image of a White-collared Manakins (Manacus candei) on the cover of Oecologia.
In this issue, Wolfe et al. show that dry El Niño events were associated with strikingly low manakin survival in young forests, while El Niño events had little effect on survival in mature forests. These results suggest that mature forests may serve as refugia for fruit-eating birds during periods of climatic instability.

Oxford University it’s using some of my images for Januaries edition of Behavioral Ecology. It’s always nice to see my images put to good use.
National Geographic Complete Birds of North America, 2nd Edition is an astonishing resource that covers every bird species found in North America as well as all the seasonal visitors.
Nirja Desai a great illustrator decided to pick one of my images for her work.

The Cloud Forest… the cold breeze, great landscapes, and the amazing birding. It’s probably one of my favorite places in the world.
I’m frequently asked if I can recommend any bird photography destination in Costa Rica.
I don’t always have the opportunity to give an answer as precise as I would like, so I thought a series of post describing some places that have work for me would be helpful for all you guys.
