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.
A common tody flycatcher has nesting material in its bill.
A female green kingfisher.
Sometimes, sitting on a branch.
Sometimes, on a rock in the river.
A buff-rumped warbler along the river.
A scarlet macaw couple flying together.
Then, an inca dove couple.
They clean their feathers.
8:47: as the bus to the south departs, white ibis flying.

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!
Thank you for your kind words! Al the best for you, your photos and the birds!
