A Red-breasted Blackbird (Sturnella militaris) sits on a fencepost and calls near Grano de Oro (Costa Rica), 6/24/99. The locals call him "Veranero" or a "Cacique veranero". This has been a South Pacific lowland bird, but reports of it moving north throughout the country are increasing. In this case, the bird is in the eastern Talamancas, far from the southeast lowlands!
