Isla Pájaros – Bird Island

We stopped by here on our way back from Soropta Canal. Interesting island!

We felt like we were approaching the Jurassic Park Island

Tarcoles Birds, Post 2 of 2

Post 1 was yesterday with 14 more photos of birds only. We used the Jungle Crocodile Safari for this visit and saw more birds than any other tour provided so far. The 8:30 AM tour. Presented in order of camera image numbers – I’m getting lazy!  🙂   We saw about 35 species of birds and I got somewhat decent photos of about 24. We saw one Scarlet Macaw, but no photo of it behind leaves.
