Los Cobanos Afternoon

Los Cobanos afternoon.

In the afternoon I went back to the patch of scrub. Nothing new but I got some interesting photos nevertheless.

I took some photos of the lizards sun bathing on the roof of the hostel and when I showed them to the owner, she said that was what the hostel was called – Casa Garrobo, after the lizards, garrobo. Ha ha.


This squirrel was into the mangos. I found a huge patch of mango trees with heaps of ripe fruit and the birds were feasting. Mainly the Melodious Blackbirds.

This Golden-fronted Woodpecker is race santacruzi, the El Salvador sub-species.

Just a touch of rufous on the wings told me what this was.
