12/22.- Tortuguero National Park, Caņo Chiquero Aquatic Trail


The list of birds you may see in Tortuguero is very long. Some of the most beautiful are the Anhinga, a diving bird that can be spotted swimming on the surface, or drying out its wings on a trunk; the Herons, another carnivorous bird that eats fish; the Kingfisher, which eats fish, frogs and small reptiles; the Trogons, colorful tropical birds that feed on insects; the sungrebe, a unique species that can fly with its baby birds in hollow pockets under its arms; the toucans, with their colorful beaks; and all kinds of parrots.

In the picture you can see a long-leg Jacana walking on the lotus flowers.
