After we had arrived on 25 March 2014 at the Pacific ocean estuary of the Tarcoles river in Costa Rica, the boat went to a mangrove area. Roseate spoonbills flying and sitting on trees.
Plumbeous kites flying.
A white ibis.
This being a mangrove area, we looked out for a mangrove cuckoo and a mangrove warbler. But I did not see them. The mangrove hummingbird lives here as well. A species unique or Costa Rica. But we did not see it either, maybe because it is too small.
Magnificent frigatebirds flying low across the water: adult birds.
And juvenile birds.
A male ringed kingfisher.
As we arrived back on land, a variegated squirrel on a power line.
