We've been seeing the blue heron the last few weeks. We love this bird, it's one of my favourites, but the like to eat our Trevorettes (trout) so he's a bit of a nuisance.
We've also seen the magnificent osprey. Gorgeous creature.
Martin told us about the otters last year (it appears they only come this time of year for some reason), but we hadn't seen any evidence they were on our property, but we saw one a few days ago.
This is called a tyra. He looks like a weasel and martin. He's usually black (sometimes brown) with a white marking on his neck. He also has a fluffy monkey-like tail. He's very agile and quick. Not harmful to us, but could be a menace to our Bettys

My husband, Kevin, and I are from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. We decided to leave the cold winters of the Great White North and the hustle and bustle of our busy lives to reinvent ourselves in the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica. The planning stage started in June 2011 and we embarked on our new adventure on August 23, 2012. Welcome to our journey... enjoy the ride.
