La Fortuna and Eco centre at Danaus plus Arenal
Early morning at the San Bosco Inn a Roadside hawk showed well as Red fronted parrotlets flew over all before breakfast.
After breakfast we took the bus to Eco centre Danaus on arrival the feeding area produced a variety of birds and mammals.
The Golden headed Tanager was splendid along with confiding mannikins and Collared Aracari .
The Jesus Christ Lizard and Agouti also showed well before we walked the reserve.
Elias led the way,first up we found a female Green Frog and its spawn.
In the butterfly sanctuary blue morpho obliged and at the ponds breeding boat billed herons.
Good numbers of boat billed herons and below them the diminutive Caimans.
A couple of bats proved difficult to see as we walked on.
Arrival back at the feeders proved exceptional for birds,close views of Aracari etc before leaving for lunch.
