This was among the first shots I took on this trip. We left the San Jose area after breakfast and travelled in a small bus for several hours to where we would make the final leg of the trip to Tortuguerro by boat. This bird was spotted from the bus, and we made a brief stop to take a few shots. As is true of many or most of my Costa Rica images, this is a true 'environmental' image showing the animal in its natural habitat, rather than the somewhat 'cleaner' images I often take.
