White ibises and jacanas in Costa Rica


White ibises and cattle egrets, 22 March 2014

After the morning of 22 March 2014 in Guanacaste province, Costa Rica, during the afternoon we went to wetlands not far away. Where we saw, eg, these white ibises and cattle egrets among cattle.

Before arriving there, we had seen roseate spoonbills at a small lake. And three black-necked stilts. And a bare-throated tiger heron.

At a bigger wetland, a limpkin. Four juvenile white ibises: not really white yet. Really white adults at the other side of the road.
