In the afternoon of 22 March 2014, we were still in wetlands of Guanacaste province in Costa Rica. Among the birds there, this Amazon kingfisher.
A spotted sandpiper flies past.
After the two smaller kingfisher species, Costa Rica’s biggest species on a branch: a ringed kingfisher.
A lesser nighthawk sleeping on another branch.
A yellow-naped parrot in a tree.
A solitary sandpiper in a pool.
It tries to look like a pole, like bitterns sometimes do.
A great egret.
A Harris’s hawk in a tree.
Black-bellied whistling ducks.
More about Costa, on 23 March 2014, will be on this blog soon.
