|I was reviewing some photos from this summer and I came across this image from my last day along the Rio Tarcoles. What the hell was I thinking? Walking along a river where I had just seen a 15 foot crocodile. Oh yeah, there were birds to see and what was the worst that could happen? For birds am I willing to take such chances? I did get my lifer Mangrove vireo, Mangrove Black Hawk, southern Beardless-Tyrannulet, and Yellow-headed Caracara. It was totally worth the risk! The only thing is that I need to see more birds and more of the world.
