So does a blue-and-yellow macaw. It flies freely, but then sits on a fence, so close that it is probably a pet.
A bit further away, in a tree, its smaller relatives, crimson-fronted parakeets, are definitely not pets.
This video is called Canopy Tour near Arenal, Costa Rica.
We walk in a rainforest, where bridges as depicted in the video, span steep ravines along rivers. An opportunity to look at wildlife in the canopy … if you have no fear of heights.
Near one of the smaller bridges, a dull-mantled antbird.
A crested guan.
A slaty-tailed trogon in a tree.
Still clouds around the top of the Arenal volcano, but less so than on some other days.
A rufous motmot. Costa Rica’s biggest motmot species.
And a northern schiffornis. Not a colourful bird; but a rare bird, singing enthusiastically.
A black-headed nightingale-thrush not far away on the footpath.
Two piratic flycatchers in a tree near the parking lot.
Near the lake, the biggest kingfisher species of Costa Rica: a ringed kingfisher. It sits on a building, near a great egret on the bank.
