River Cruises and Rarities

WC went on a river cruise yesterday. On the Caño Negro, in a wildlife refuge near the Costa Rica – Nicaragua border. In a faux dugout, with a sun roof and few amenities. The birding was very, very good.



This handsome bird was skulking in the mangrove roots along the stream edge. The boat operator did excellent work getting us views of the bird. The angle here isn’t ideal, but WC is happy with the result.

Bandwidth at the current lodge is grievously limited. Posts have been difficult to impossible. But WC starts back to civilization today, alas, so subject to the whims of travel, Wickersham’s Conscience should shortly be returning to regular content.
