19 March 2014 in Costa Rica. After the morning, in the afternoon we left the Bajo del Toro area to go to the Arenal volcano region. There, we would see this white-throated magpie jay.
Before arriving there, we had seen many green iguanas at a bridge. A bare-throated night heron on the river bank.
A grey-lined hawk on a wire.
We continued to La Fortuna town. Its original name was El Borio. The name changed in 1968: an Arenal volcano eruption then killed many people, but El Borio was untouched. The new name is about the good fortune of the town during that eruption.
Until recently, Arenal was a working volcano, attracting many tourists and making the town touristy.
In the park in La Fortuna: red-billed pigeon and blue-gray tanager in a tree.
A great-tailed grackle flying.
A tropical kingbird on a wire.
We continued, seeing the white-throated magpie jay already mentioned.
A bit further, a white-fronted parrot in a tree.
A red-lored parrot, feeding in another tree.
As we continued further, a crested guan.
A chestnut-mandibled toucan in yet another tree.
A white hawk flying.
The top of the Arenal volcano was covered in clouds.
Finally, a beautiful sunset near a bridge.
