Dacris cayana are small birds and the males are a brilliant blue. The females are a bit duller, but still beautiful.
I read that they live in Nicaragua, Panama and South America, as far south as Bolivia and northern Argentina.
What doesn’t make sense to me is what happened to Costa Rica? Did the birds do a fly over like an airline direct route? I could be wrong, but I figure that these birds are also in Costa Rica.
