Having a chance in life to find the ‘Sunbittern’ is something special, at least this told me some of the ‘birding-guys’ in Sarapiqui. Therefore I was quite surprised finding this species in the Rio Perlas Resort near Cartago .
If you have a chance to see his wings… you will recognize those two sun’s. After the morning hours the Sunbittern was no more showing up. I couldn’t even find him in his nest:
And the day after, I’ve tried again. I never had such a wet situation before and my camera was suffering quite a bit, when I was trying to get a pic with open wings (darkness, rain, flash…).
Hopefully I will have another chance in life to see this Sunbittern, maybe with better weather conditions and more light 🙂
