Agelaius phoeniceus, Red-winged Blackbird

Agelaius, phoeniceus, Red, winged, Blackbird, Caño, Negro, Wildlife, Refuge, Costa Rica, Kaido Rummel
Kraaks!
Caw!
Agelaius phoeniceus, Red-winged Blackbird
Tegelikult ei kraaksu see eestikeelse nimeta rästaline teps mitte, tema laul (mida saad ülalt ka kuulata) meenutab pigem mõne algelise arvutiprogrammiga tehtud helisid. Leidub seda "robotlindu" peamiselt Põhja-Ameerikas (kuni Kanada tundrani välja), Caño Negro märgala Costa Ricas (kus on pildid tehtud) on sisuliselt levila lõunapiiriks. Tegemist on Põhja-Ameerika ühe kõige levinuma linnuga.
Actually the red-winged blackbird does not caw at all, its song (that you can listen above) is more similar to the sounds that a very basic computer program can create. You can find this "robot bird" from all across North America (up to the Canadian tundra) and the Caño Negro wetland in Costa Rica (where the photos are taken) is the southern boundary of the range. This blackbird is one of the most common birds in North America.

Väiketüll, Charadrius dubius

Väiketüll, tüll, Charadrius, dubius, Little, Ringed, Plover, Estonia, Kaido Rummel Väiketüll, tüll, Charadrius, dubius, Little, Ringed, Plover, Estonia, Kaido Rummel
Väiketüll on mõni sentimeeter lühem kui tema suurem sugulane liivatüll ning Eestis on ta ka harvemini kohatav. Tavaliseks eristusviisiks kahe liigi vahel on silma ümbritsev kollane rõngas (väiketüllil), kuid noorlindudel (kes on ka piltidel) ei tule see erinevus nii selgelt välja. Jalgade värv ja ka peamustrid on sel juhul abiks. Fotod tehtud Pärnumaa soisel rannaniidul.
Little Ringed Plover is couple of centimetres smaller than its bigger realtive ringed plover and it is also rarer in Estonia. The usual distinction between the species is the clear yellow eye-ring (that little plover has) but in juveniles that does not help much as the eye-ring is much duller. In that case leg colour and the head pattern help to identify the bird. The photos are taken in a marshy coastal meadow in Pärnumaa, Estonia.

Ameerika kontinendi troopilises vöötmes elutsev Koldjalg-sultantait eelistab elupaigana soiseid alasid. Tema pikkade varvastega jalad on ideaalsed ujuvate taimede peal kõndimiseks ning muda sees sumpamiseks. Ka sultantaidi pesa on ehitatud vee peale - hundinuiadest, rohust ja pilliroost punutud parveke on ankurdatud kindlalt veetaimede külge. Ning see veesilm ei saa olla lihtsalt üks suvaline lomp, vaid peab olema vähemalt pool meetrit sügav. Fotod tehtud Caño Negro kaitsealal, Costa Ricas.
Purple Gallinule is found in the tropics of the American continent and it prefers marshy areas as habitat. Its extremely long toes are perfect for walking on top of floating vegetation and in mud. Nest is also built on water - it is a platform of cattails, grasses, sedges, firmly anchored to standing marsh vegetation. And it cannot be any other small puddle - the water has to be at least 50cm deep.  The photos are taken in Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge, Costa Rica.

Punajalg, pistrik, Falco, vespertinus, Red, footed, Falcon, Western, Estonia, Kaido Rummel Punajalg, pistrik, Falco, vespertinus, Red, footed, Falcon, Western, Estonia, Kaido Rummel
Bussipeatusel kirjas olnud sõna väljendas hästi seda emotsiooni, kui punajalg-pistrikku seal istumas nägin. Pistrikud ei jää just tihti kaamera ette, reeglina näeb neid ainult ülikiireid sööstlende tehes. Kuna lähenesin rahulikult ning linnu närvikava oli paigas, siis lõpuks sain pilti teha täpselt nii lähedalt kui soovisin. Tartumaa.
The name of the bus stop reflected my exact emotion when I saw Red-footed Falcon sitting there. The falcons do not come in front of the camera very often and you usually just see them doing fast attack flights. As I approached calmly and the nerves of the bird were OK, I finally I got as close as I wanted. Tartumaa, Estonia.

Koolibride seas on see eestikeelse nimeta tegelane üsna kogukas - pikkust lausa kuni 14 cm. Elutseb ta üsna laial territooriumil - USA keskläänest kuni Lääne-Panamani. Samas on linnu selgeks eelistuseks mägisemad piirkonnad, kõrgust peab elukohal olema vähemalt 2000 meetrit. Fotod tehtud Costa Rica keskosa kõrgmäestikus, Quetzalite rahvuspargis.
Amongst hummingbirds the Magnificent Hummingbird or Rivoli's Hummingbird is quite bulky - it can be even 14 cm long. You can find it from southwestern United States to western Panama and it prefers mountains, that are at least 2000 metres high, as a habitat. The photos are taken in Talamanca mountains, Parque Nacional Los Quetzales, Costa Rica.

Kesk-Ameerika pärimuses on hundketsal püha lind, keda seostatakse nii Ussijumala kui ka Õhujumalaga. Linnu tapmine oli sellel ajal suur kuritegu, kuid kuna kunagised asteekide ja maiade ülikud "vajasid" oma peaehetesse uhkeid ketsali sabasulgi, siis linde siiski püüti, kuid pärast sabasulgede harvendamist lasti jälle lahti. Tänapäeval harvendatakse aga metsasid, mistõttu on ketsal sattunud Punases Raamatus ohulähedasse kategooriasse. Kohata võib teda (väga suure vedamise korral) Kesk-Ameerika mägistes pilvemetsades. Fotod tehtud Curi-cancha kaitsealal, Monteverde pilvemetsas, Costa Ricas.
In Central American folklore Resplendent Quetzal is a holy bird that is associated with the snake god and also god of the air. Killing of this bird was a serious crime back then but as the nobility of the ancient Aztecs and Maya "needed" its tail feathers for their headdresses, quetzals were captured, their tails "harvested" and then set free again. Nowadays are the forests that are harvested and this is the reason why resplendent quetzal is classified as near threatened on the Red List. You can find it (if you are really lucky) in the montane cloud forests of Central America. The photos are taken in Curi-Cancha Reserve, Monteverde cloud forest, Costa Rica.

Kuningtiirusid võib leida peaaegu kõikidelt randadelt, mis asuvad Atlandi ookeani kaldal (nii Ameerikas, Aafrikas kui Euroopas) ning samuti Ameerika mandri Vaikse ookeani randadelt. Ookeanide äärde hoiavad nad seetõttu, et põhitoiduseks on kalad, krabid ja molluskid, keda just rannalähedastest vetest on kõige mugavam kätte saada. Fotod tehtud Nicoya poolsaarel, Vaikse ookeani rannikul, Costa Ricas.
Royal Terns can be found from almost all the coasts of the Atlantic ocean (in Americas, Africa and Europe) and also on the Pacific coast of the Americas. They keep near the ocean because their food comes from there - fish, crustaceans, mollusks - and it's the easiest to catch these from the shallow waters of the coastline. The photos are taken in Nicoya peninsula, on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica.

Kaelus-karmiintangara on väga efektse välimusega lind, mistõttu on ta ka paljudele looduspiltnikele maiuspala. Probleem on aga selles, et ta tegutseb peamiselt puude latvades, mistõttu objektiivi ette on lindu keeruline saada. Mul see siiski korraks õnnestus ning hoolimata keerulistest oludest, sai see sekund eelpool nähtaval kujul ära fikseeritud. Sarapiqui org, Costa Rica.
Crimson-collared Tanager is a striking bird and therefore a desired subject for the bird photographers. The only problem is the fact that the bird keeps itself to middle and upper levels of the rainforest thus it is quite difficult to get the tanager in front of the camera. I managed to accomplish that despite the tricky conditions and this one and only second was captured onto the memory card like seen before. Sarapiqui valley, Costa Rica.

Piilub!
Suur-lotthoko on kalkunisuurune lind (pikkust kuni 90cm), keda leidub Lõuna-Mehhikost Lõuna-Venetsueelani. Toitub see hoko peamiselt puuviljadest ja marjadest ning hääleka ja arvuka linnuna, jäävad tema hüüatused Kesk-Ameerikas tihti kõrvu. Foto tehtud Arenali vulkaani jalamil, Costa Ricas.
Peeking!
Crested Guan has a size of a turkey (length up to 90cm) and it is found from south Mexico to southern Venezuela. The bird feeds mainly on fruit and berries and being a loud and numerous bird, you can often hear it calling in Central America. The photo is taken at the foot of Arenal volcano, Costa Rica.

Pisike (kuni 15 cm pikkune) värbrüdi on üsna iseseisev lind, tavaliselt nad rändamisel parvi ei moodusta. Siiski võib kohata teda teiste kahlajate keskel, rannamudast toitu otsimas. See rüdi kasutab saagiotsingutel peamiselt oma väga head silmanägemist. Läänemaa.
Tiny (up to 15 cm long) Temminck's Stint is quite a solitary bird, they usually do not gather into flocks during the migration. Despite that you can find the bird in the midst of other waders, searching for food from the coastal mud. This stint uses its very good eyesight to find the prey. Läänemaa, Estonia.

Õõnesäälik (õõne-säälik, mitte õõnes-äälik) on väike laululind, kes pesitseb Põhja-Ameerika lääneosas ning talvitub Kesk-Ameerikas ning Lõuna-Ameerika põhjaosas. Elupaigaks sobivad soised lehtpuumetsad ning just sellises paigas on ka fotod tehtud. Toitub see säälik peamiselt putukatest ja tigudest ning täna ta veel ohustatud liik ei ole (kuigi Kanadas on lind võetud juba kaitse alla). Caño Negro märgala kaitseala, Costa Rica.
Prothonotary Warbler is a small songbird that breeds in eastern parts of North America and winters in the Central America and northern South America. The suitable habitats are hardwood swamps and in that kind of place are the photos taken. This warbler feeds mainly on insects and snails and it is not threatened yet (although the bird is listed as endangered in Canada). Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge, Costa Rica.

Mõnikord lihtsalt on nii, et lind on ilus ja taust on ilus, kuid ikkagi on istumiskohaks valitud traat. Türkiismotmot on sellegipoolest üks efektsemaid ja elegantsemaid linde, keda olen kohanud. Kirev sulestik ning omapärane (kohati "paljas") saba teevad tast vägagi silmatorkava tegelase. Kohata võib seda motmoti Mehhiko Yucatani poolsaarest Costa Ricani ning levila kõige lõunapoolsemas tipus, Carara rahvuspargis, Costa Ricas, on ka need fotod tehtud.
Sometimes it just happens that the bird is beautiful and the background is perfect but the sitting place is still a wire. Nevertheless, turquoise-browed motmot is still one of the most elegant and stunning birds I have ever met. The colorful plumage and delicate tail (even "bare" in places) make this guy very easy on the eye.  You can find this motmot from Yucatan peninsula in Mexico to Costa Rica. These photos are taken in the southern tip of the range, in Carara National Park, Costa Rica.
