Volcan Poas - Costa Rica

Two friends and I spent the afternoon at the top of Volcan Poas. It was shrouded in fog at first then suddenly the clouds parted to reveal the active crater, and what a magnificent sight it was. This was an excellent choice as it is close to San Jose, Costa Rica. 25 February 2017.


The birds were magical and blended in well with the vegetation in the cloud forest. Sooty-capped Bush-Finch.25 February 2017.

Yellow-thighed Finches were easy to see on the trail.
