This is one of the three endangered Yellow-billed Cotingas, for the first time, captured using mist nets, fitted with tracking devices and released unharmed near the Costa Rican town of Rincon. This rare bird about which relatively little is known is endemic to the Pacific slope mangrove forests of Panama and Costa Rica.
