And we're off! So long Arenal, we gotta hit the road. We do appreciate the amazing send-off this morning. First among the "usual" assortment of hummingbirds was this pair of dueling white-throated Jacobin males. You can't tell because the camera thought they were something in the way of a nice landscape shot, but I love the picture just for existing. :-)
I think the yellow-faced grassquit might be my favorite field-of-grass bird. I mean, they have a big yellow x on the front of their face. How can you not love that?

Heading back to the rooms to pack up we finally had a good look at the crested guans. I got the crest nearly completely deployed. Well done Sir Guan!
