Collared Redstart
Myioborus torquatus
The Collared Redstart (Myioborus torquatus) is a warbler with a fairly small distribution, occurring from Costa Rica to western Panama. It is a bird of montane forest and second growth. Like it's relative, the Slate-throated Redstart, this species often fans its tail while foraging, displaying the conspicuous white outer tail feathers. This individual was photographed in October, 1995 at Chacons, 15 km SSE of Tres de Junio, Provincia de San Jose, Costa Rica with a Canon T-90 and FD 400mm F4.5 lens from a BushHawk shoulder mount with a Fresnel flash. Fuji Sensia 100 film was used.
