Arenal, the home of a volcano that last erupted 60 years ago! Sadly for us, there was a lot of cloud and we didn’t manage to fully see the volcano, but we did hike up to see the cloud surrounding it a little clearer!!
However, I was very excited on the way up as we saw the bird I most wanted to see….the Keel Billed Toucan……….
Now-in Europe we don’t see hummingbirds, so there was great excitement a brewing for me as I knew there would be lots……Here’s my first ever photo of a hummingbird….IN REAL LIFE!!
This week the theme is Magic and we have to share photos that brought a little magic to us!
Whilst out walking this weekend I thought I saw a very strange coloured bird-sort of bright green- and then a most unusual screech-not one I could identify with the bird life in Buckinghamshire UK!
As I got nearer I noticed there were bird boxes, about the same size as a beehive, which were obviously home to whatever these birds were. Then from out of nowhere a flock of bright green parakeets swooped overhead and a flew into a large nearby tree!
This sight certainly brought a little magic to my Saturday afternoon!
