While most of the birds we saw in Costa Rica were new to me, there were many familiar species, including Snowy Egrets, Cormorants, Great Egrets, Great Blue Herons, and this Anhinga. This was taken from the boat as we explored the Park, and with its beautiful breeding colors, and somewhat rare sunshine, I couldn't resist shooting a nice tight head-shot.
