Today was mangrove tour day! Apparently I didn't do much else, there are no pictures from the morning.
Starting the tour were some iguanas in trees. I thought I saw a crocodile right away, but it was just a bunch of floating vegetation. And thus the rest of the boat was introduced to my optimism. :-)
Jacana! They claimed it's the first one they've seen here. Yay! I didn't get a good view of its ridiculous feet, but did get a great view of its built-in sun visor. Love!
River turtle. We saw two of these, they are good-sized turtles, and so beautiful!
I'll say it again - Damn You Autofocus!
There was also another kind of swallow, they said southern rough-winged. They were hiding in bad light though, so the pictures are not great. I got a really nice shot later though!
We saw two crocodiles. They saw the one chilling by the bank, but didn't see the one swimming across the front of the boat until I pointed it out. The pics came out..... meh.
This green heron is much less shy!
Purple gallinule! At last! We actually saw a bunch of these guys here and there. This guy was so elusive in Cayman, the guides were a little confused why I was excited to see them. :-)
Yellow crowned night heron, showing off, lounge lizard style. He looks like he's about to break into Rod Sterwart at any time!
Short billed (?) pigeon. We didn't stick around. Really, birders are the only ones at all interested in different kinds of pigeons, unless they look ~really~ different.
White ibis! They are both gorgeous and ..... well, a bit freaky. Doesn't its head look ..... well..... slightly vulture-esque?
Little blue heron number 17-ish. Seriously, they were everywhere!
