Scarlet macaws and green kingfisher in Costa Rica

Common tody-flycatcher, 26 March 2014

After 25 March 2014 near and on the Tarcoles river in Costa Rica, came 26 March 2016. Our last morning near the Tarcoles river. With birds like this common tody flycatcher.

On a rock in the river, a spotted sandpiper.

Leaf-cutter ants on two-lane highways across the grass: in one direction, ants with pieces of leaves. In the other direction, ants which still had to get pieces of leaf.

6:25. Two bare-throated tiger herons fly to a tree along the river.

  9. i’m late in replying to the kingfisher, but looked at this offline at home and am now back at the cyber… ah, seeing the images brought back memories of costa rica – yet i also marvel at how many species are there and here as well.. those feathered creatures do a good job of navigating, no passports needed, no border controls, no fuel consumption – just free to live where the ecosystem is friendly….

    i love the tody flycatchers – so precious! thanks for the link, and as always, for your long-term support!
