Variable Seedeater (Sporophila corvina) - 28Nov2016

Here is an underwhelming picture of an underwhelming bird.  There are more than 30 species of Sporophila.  In Costa Rica there are two "races" of this species that look totally different.  The male of the Caribbean race is all black with the some white wing markings like this one photographed at Sarapiqui.  The Pacific race has a white collar.  I have seen both but need to improve photographs.
