23 March 2014. After the shorebirds of the Guanacaste Pacific coast in Costa Rica, we arrived back. At 12:50, the Pacific screech owl family, two parents and three youngsters, turned out to be still present.
We depart. From the dry part of Costa Rica we go south, to a more rainy area.

Laughing gulls. Marbled godwits.
Brown pelicans flying.
We arrive near Carara National Park.
This video is called Carara National Park Costa Rica.
This is a special area. The northern Pacific coast of Costa Rica is dry. While southern Pacific Costa Rica has rainforests.
In Carara National Park, both environments meet, making for much biodiversity.
