Navarro, Costa Rica.
Sister to C. pulchra. Race mitrata appears morphologically rather distinctive on account of its larger size (1), with azure hood set slightly farther back on crown and a clear vs hinted whitish leading edge to it (2), but is vocally very like races guatemalae and hondurensis; in contrast, it is the nominate which differs vocally, with an even-pitched (vs upslurred) and less nasal “scratchy call” (2) and a higher-pitched “fast call” with different-shaped notes (2)#R. Four subspecies recognized.
