Costa Rican Wedgetail

Costa Rican Wedgetails are relatively new to science, described in 1985. They are, nevertheless, relatively common in their Costa Rican and Nicaraguan range. They do not require specific habitat, preferring a variety of wetlands like ponds and streams.

We saw them several times, but here, near the Arenal Obseratory Lodge on 10 July 2917, I was able to capture an image of the wedge-shaped structure at the end of its abdomen.
