One of the big target bird species and specialities for Costa Rica has to be the Resplendent Quetzal. Everywhere you go you see signs of adoration for this bird. What makes me laugh is that it is not even considered as the National bird of Costa Rica. Instead the plain Clay-coloured Robin has that title and it looks similar to a female Blackbird. If I was Costa Rican I'd be a little peeved that such a colourful specimen like the Quetzal did not make the grade.
