Just a short while after starting our walk into Manuel Antonio Park, we came across the scene, where a pair of Fiery-billed Aracari were feeding a chick in the nest.  You can see one of them passing some type of red berry into the mouth of the chick in this shot.  As you can see, there was significant back-lighting to deal with here, and because of some Park restrictions, I didn't have my 600L with me, and so had to rely on smaller lenses.  Still, we had a blast shooting and watching these birds.
