Capybaras at last!
Capybaras are so intriguing -- the largest rodent species on earth! I really wanted to see a capybara, and today, our last birdwatching day, I finally did! We also saw a tree rat looking out of its hole in a tree, so along with the agoutis that have been grazing in several places, we have now seen three rodents, as well as 2 kinds of sloth, 2 kinds of monkey, an armadillo, and a kinkajou. Plus hundreds of kinds of birds. Eventually Len and I will post more photos.
Above: just before the bridge across the Chagras River, there's a house covered with graffiti.
Below: my favorite bird of the day: a blue-black grassquit, singing next to the railroad tracks -- you can see the chain-link fence behind him.
This morning we saw quite a lot of birds walking along the pipeline road again. To see more on Flickr... click on these photos.
