Mac’s First Post

We are in Costa Rica. It is our third day. We have seen three types of monkeys: Central American Spider, Howler, White-faced Capuchin. For birds, we saw wild and caged parakeets, Brown-footed Boobies, The Magnificent Frigate Bird, Black Vulture, Brown Pelican, Slaty-tailed Trogon, White-throated Magpie-jay, peacock and a Great Curassow. I hope to see a Toucan, Scarlet Macaw, and the Resplendent Quetzal. We have seen reptiles, including Litter Skinks (I caught two of them), Central American Whiptails, and I caught a Central American Smooth Gecko. Of course, I let them go. I saw a Ctenosaur, which has a cool name. It’s also called a Black Iguana. I saw a small bird on the beach and I think it is called a Sanderling.

Later I will post about arthropods, especially crabs and Parasol Ants. Dad helped me type this and soon I will do the typing myself.

  1. Mac,

    Can you keep a count on all the animals you see? Auntie Mar was counting all the wild animals she saw on her trip and I bet you will see way more!!

  2. You lucky duck. I love birds and am always on the look out for new ones. I saw a pair of black and white warblers the other day. A big day for uncle scott! But nothing compared to yours. Keep your eyes peeled!
