A social flycatcher on a roof calls.
A brown violetear hummingbird flies around.
A cattle egret flies past.
As we walk, a buff-rumped warbler.
And a dusky-capped flycatcher.
A broad-winged hawk on a wire.
A yellow-throated euphonia with nesting material in its bill.
A bronzed cowbird on another wire.
Another bird on a wire: a southern rough-winged swallow.
A grey-headed chachalaca in a tree.
Our bus departs.
Soon, a bicoloured hawk on a branch.
Then, cattle egrets among cattle.
At 17 minutes past 9, a crested guan in a tree.
Eleven minutes later, the long-tailed tyrant of the first photo in this blog post, and of this photo, in a leafless tree.
Half an hour later, a yellow-bellied flycatcher; here in winter, in North America in summer.
Still later, in Guanacaste province, we get out of the mountains and closer to sea level. Much hotter. Much drier, as plant life and bird life show.
A great-tailed grackle flying near a supermarket.
13:20. A variegated squirrel on a fence near a restaurant.
Rufous-naped wrens, the biggest wren species in Costa Rica.
Still much bigger: scarlet macaws.
A chestnut-mandibled toucan in a cage, for rehabilitation.
Hours later, along an unpaved road, a double-striped thick-knee in a dry meadow.
A bit further, a crested caracara.
