During the 1 1/2 hour boat ride to our Tortuguero lodge in Costa Rica, we were able to stop and see some of the wildlife along the river. All along the river we could see Little Blue Herons, three species of Kingfishers, Anhinga, Great Egrets, Cattle Egrets, White Ibis and lots of monkeys. Part of the river is in the Tortuguero and only so many boats are allowed in the park at one time.
The Northern Jacana and this huge Crocodile was a neat sighting. The Northern Jacana was a life bird for me and a first time for seeing a Croc in the wild.
The Northern Jacana is found on freshwater bodies with floating vegetation. Jacana's are called lilytrotters for their ability to walk on this vegetation. With this huge croc laying there I hope the Jacana moves quickly.
