Ometepe Island

While I am rendering my previews, I suppose I could start on this blog post. I was lucky I got out of Granada. They had the road out blockaded and I had to get a taxi to the blockage and walk through it, then get 3 buses to the ferry at San Jorge. Oh man , what a horrible boat. The worst boat ride ever. What a piece of crap! And I was sitting right next to the exhaust which was burning my face.

I have no idea what this parakeet is. I cannot find it in my book. They are screeching their heads off around my hotel. Edit: I think it is a Yellow-naped Parrot.

White-throated Magpie-jay

Bare-throated Tiger-heron

Lucky this one came and sat on the tree right next to where I was having a rest.

I have no idea what exact species this is.
