Not all the time in Costa Rica was spent looking for birds. We found a bunch of cool iguanas and some frogs. And a big old toad.
Streak-headed and Tawny-winged Woodcreepers plus giant Pale-billed Woodpeckers and tiny Olivaceous Piculets. Oh, and Hoffman's and Black-cheeked Woodpeckers. A bunch of cool birds.
Want to see a LOT of Kingfishers and Boat-billed Herons? How about Northern Jacanas or Mangrove Vireos? One way to get really close to birds in Costa Rica is …. by boat.
Imagine looking up and seeing a bright flash of red or green streaming through the sky squawking and calling? Or climbing all over the trees in your back yard?
It was a surprise to me how many raptors and owls we were able to find and photograph on our Costa Rica trip.
Costa Rica is full of exotic and colorful birds nothing like the ones we have at home. Just just have to look for them.
One of our target birds for Coast Rica was the Bare-throated Tiger Heron. Our best opportunities were on the boat rides along the Tarcoles River.
Special edition! I have so many photos from Costa Rica it would take years to share them all if I just published on Fridays. Let’s start with all the glorious Toucans we saw!
A trip to Dallas and a couple of visits to Cullinan Park. Will Summer ever end?
