Roseate spoonbills and magnificent frigatebirds in Costa Rica


Roseate spoonbill, 25 March 2014

After we had arrived on 25 March 2014 at the Pacific ocean estuary of the Tarcoles river in Costa Rica, the boat went to a mangrove area. Roseate spoonbills flying and sitting on trees.

This being a mangrove area, we looked out for a mangrove cuckoo and a mangrove warbler. But I did not see them. The mangrove hummingbird lives here as well. A species unique or Costa Rica. But we did not see it either, maybe because it is too small.
