Costa Rica Day 19, 24 February 2014 - Montezuma area

Having exhausted most of the possibilities locally (although I'd have quite happily gone back to Cabo Blanco!) we stayed in the Montezuma area for the day. The walk to the famous Montezuma waterfall was right opposite our lodge so we did that and generally bummed around the beach area taking photographs, lounging on hammocks, drinking coffee and eating!

Birding wasn't exactly spectacular but I did managed a few bits and bobs and a few shots of some commoner species. 2 Inca Doves, 1 Yellow-headed Caracara, 20+ Magnificent Frigatebirds, 1 Lesser Greenlet, 2 Bare-throated Tiger Herons, Cinnamon Hummingbird, 2 White-throated Magpie-Jays and the usual good numbers of Brown Pelican and Royal Terns. One Brown Pelican decided to roost in a tree at our lodge so enabled some closer pics. Pick of the day however (and keeping up the record of at least one new bird a day) were 2 showy Orange-fronted Parakeets in roadside trees between our lodge and the village.
