Birds of Costa Rica's Facebook Banner Image

July 20th, 2014 [47]
After setting up the BoCR Facebook page, the first thing on the agenda is to set a nice banner image for visitors of the page to see. For this I chose one of my favourite birding action shots.

Here's the facebook banner image:

Roadside Hawk and Emerald swift or Green spiny lizard
Roadside Hawk (Buteo magnirostris) and Emerald swift or Green spiny lizard (Sceloporus malachiticus)
It's a Roadside Hawk which was spotted waiting patiently high in an African Palm in Puerto Jiménez, south-western Costa Rica. Within 10 minutes, it soared down into the nearby tangle of mangroves and began to devour a Green spiny lizard (Sceloporus malachiticus).

Here's the uncropped version:
