Scarlet macaws, chestnut-sided warblers and black iguana in Costa Rica


Chestnut-sided warbler male, 24 March 2014

After 23 March 2014 near Carara national park in Costa Rica came 24 March. When we saw this wintering bird from North America, a male chestnut-sided warbler.

Earlier that morning: a great kiskadee calls.

A scarlet macaw flying overhead near the forest trail, calling.

A black-hooded antshrike on a branch. These birds live only in Costa Rica and western Panama.

An orange-collared manikin. Also a species, restricted to Costa Rica and western Panama.

A white-nosed coati on the trail.

A variable seedeater, also on the trail.

A northern waterthrush.

Rufous-tailed jacamar, 24 March 2014

As we walk back, two rufous-tailed jacamars on a branch not far away.

Then, lots of feathers. A brown jay was apparently eaten here by a mammalian predator, considering the state of the feathers.

Orange-collared manakin, 24 March 2014

We see an orange-collared manakin. The same one as when we walked in the other direction?

Later, near the swimming pool, a great kiskadee nest with at least one chick. Its parents visit it again and again.

Later that day, we would go to another part of the forest near the Tarcoles river. So, stay tuned!
