16 March 2016. After the morning, the afternoon still near the Sarapiqui river in Costa Rica.
A collared aracari on a branch not far away.
An hour later, we go aboard a boat on the river. Mangrove swallows fly around us. Sometimes, they sit still on fallen trees in or near the river.
A bit after the northern rough-winged swallow, a great kiskadee, drinking from the river water.
Then, an Amazon kingfisher, swallowing a fairly big fish.
A great egret.
Chestnut-mandibled toucans; Costa Rica’s biggest toucan species.
A bare-throated tiger heron flying.
A spotted sandpiper on a bank.
Also on a bank: two green iguanas.
Then, a special mammal: a nine-banded armadillo on a sandy bank.
Soon after it, a special bird: a sunbittern.
Then, again, a really special bird: a sungrebe.
An anhinga on a tree which had fallen into the water.
A rufous motmot on a tree on a bank.
A snowy egret flying across the river.
A little blue heron in shallow water near the bank.
As the boat lands, red-lored parrots in a tree.
On top of another tree, a bat falcon.
In the evening, a red-eyed tree frog.
We would see more frogs, and birds, next day. So, stay tuned!
