Hummingbirds, flowers and iguana in Costa Rica

Montezuma's oropendola male, 17 March 2014

Still the morning of 17 March 2014 near the Sarapiqui river in Costa Rica. After the earlier Montezuma’s oropendola’s, we see this bird species again. Doing gymnastics on a branch again.

It likes the beautiful flowers, which grow here. And in the botanical garden on the other site of the road, where we would go later and where the flower photos were taken.
