[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
From my trip to Costa Rica.
The Golden-browed Chlorophonia is confined to southern Central America, where it ranges from northern Costa Rica south to western Panama. Males are striking and easily identified birds with bright grass green upperparts, throat and upper breast, while the rest of the underparts and broad supercilium are yellow; there is also a patch of bright green on the lower flanks, and the crown is blue. Females are somewhat less distinctive, but share the blue crown and nape, and have some yellow on the underparts, but are otherwise mainly green. The species is typically uncommon and somewhat local, being found in the canopy of highland forests above 750 m elevation.
