More of the eleven species of heron we saw in Costa Rica.

Snowy Egrets were abundant at Palo Verde. The extensive yellow backs to the tarsi, coupled with bright yellow lores, will separate it from Little Egret when one rocks up on Bardsey this year (c) Richard Brown

A Green Heron, again at Palo Verde, where they were abundant (c) Richard Brown

The only Yellow-crowned Night-herons we saw were along the Tempisque River at Palo Verde (c) Richard Brown

A Tricoloured Heron, probably down from North America for a warmer winter (c) Richard Brown
