One thing we loved at La Estancia was all the birds. The staff had a bird feeder and hung out bunches of bananas and there was always a variety of birds coming to eat. You could sit out on the terrace and watch them, which was really pleasant. What a great place to relax and enjoy nature.
I’m not sure what they put in this feeder, but the little birds were always there, and some larger ones visited frequently as well.
The birds were surprisingly good at sharing.
A fruit eating woodpecker!
We saw many of these agouti also.
This bird was so black it looked blue/purple in the sunlight.
The black vulture always seems to be hanging out at the corner down the street.
This large dove often visited with a mate.
The oropendulas were quite a bit more talkative than the ones I usually see in our neighborhood.
Little by little I’m sorting photos and catching up on events of our trip. I also need to backtrack and post photos of the huge horse parade that happened right before we left. Sometimes there’s just a lot of things going on!
