This meditating (ok sun-bathing) young Bare-throated Tiger-Heron was actually from earlier in the boat ride, but I forgot the pics the first time through.
I wonder how many of these disappear down heron throats every year, or how big they have to be for the spines on the crab to prevent them from becoming a meal.
There was a frigatebird feeding frenzy; probably 50-100 of them were swirling around and diving down towards the water. I'm not sure I've seen a frigatebird since the birds at Tiscornia.
A Yellow-headed Caracara perched directly above another boat. It quickly flushed and landed right at water's edge.
There were other predators along the water too.
Finally two large shorebirds without North American counterparts, first a Southern Lapwing. I was surprised by how big the two birds we saw were.
Even larger was a double-striped thick-knee. It was really long-legged.
