I take a lot of photos of some pretty neat animals, but very few of them are any good. This leaves me torn between posting less often, and only photos that I feel are my best, or posting more often including photos that aren't necessarily my favourite. Since you're the ones who have to scroll past my posts, what do you want to see? More photos or less photos?
This is a Crested Guan perched high up in a tree one morning in La Fortuna. The next door neighbor to the place we were staying let me know that these birds are called Tree Turkeys. The name made sense since they were always perched up in the tree tops, and I didn't know any better so that's what I started referring to them as. It wasn't until I got home and bought a field guide to the birds of Costa Rica that I learned Tree Turkey is not their appropriate name. These birds have a pretty cool song that they sing at dusk.
This trip was a bit spontaneous, so I didn't actually buy a field guide to the birds of Costa Rica until after I got home lol
