Tossing kitchen scraps in the yard can be interesting. We have been tossing them outside of the office window so we can peek at the visitors. The iguanas are usually very shy. We have spotted them but they always take off if they spot us. Today I managed to get some video through the window before he saw me. Apparently they really like papaya peels!
There have actually been two iguanas in the yard today. The bigger one is more skittish.
The smaller one is darker, and seems a little less likely to run off though he also remains very aware of his surroundings. Here he is with a papaya peel in his mouth.

I am very excited about this photo! These cocaleca, or wood rails are so shy and hard to photograph. This is the first decent photo I’ve taken since I’ve been here.
These are the birds that make the amazing sounds. The first night I heard them I took a video and I still love listening to them.
And, a couple other things…
I spotted this interesting tree in town. It had green balls the size of small bowling balls! Does anyone know what it is?
The other night had a really beautiful sunset.
