Cahuta National Park

Green Heron feeding in the shadows at the creek at Cahuta National Park

  The last few hours of the day, before I leave further north up the Caribbean coast, were spent at the park. I saw mostly the same species of birds that I've seen in the last two days. 2 very vocal Rufus and White Wrens showed very well. but not for the camera.

Saw 3 of these maga Flat-backed Millipede!

Note the tiny dot above the female Gold-orb Spider opisthosoma. Any closer and the male could end up as a snack!

Don't go through one of the webs of the Golden-orb Spider. I have a few times while being in Costa Rica and it's not a pleasant experience. There webs are very strong and hard to brake and are as big as you are! Only once did the spider land on me and I just let it gentle crawl onto my hand and then shaked and flicked it away as far as possible and ran home as fast I could! But don't she look amazing!

More dragonflies?

This Black-cheeked Woodpecker and Plain-backed Woodcreeper, at some point, were on the same tree! I took these two just before dark in the park


Grey-headed Chachalaca in the afternoon sun. Also seen Plain Chachalaca on my travels

A few of the commonest birds in Costa Rica, Black Vulture, Western Kingbird, Chestnut-sided Warbler and Banannaquit were often in the hostel garden

The Tricoloured Heron made a change from the nearby calm creek to the waves of the ocean

As usual, very good stuff from Bonoboo 'Beachy Head' from the LP 'Remixes and B-Sides. Simon Green (born 30 March), also known by his stage name Bonobo, is a British musician, producer and DJ.
Green has recorded and performed solo DJ sets under the name Barakas, and together with Robert Luis from Tru Thoughts as Nairobi and Barakas.
