On our way from Selva Verde lodge to Savegre Mountain Resort in Costa Rica, we stopped along the Rio Sucio (I think that was the name of the river) to look once more for Sunbittern before heading up into the mountains. We did not find the Sunbittern, but we did find other birds of interest, including this Bare-throated Tiger-Heron. On the way back to the bus, the Tiger-Heron was sunning itself. I am not sure whether it was trying to cool off or to warm up…or perhaps the pose was to kill mites in the feathers. At any rate it was interesting. Sony RX10iv at 600mm equivalent.
