visited the frog farm to see some rain forest frogs, just in case we don't get to see them while we are out on our walk tomorrow, at least we know what we are looking for, and they are so small they are going to be hard to find. These Frogs were in glass tanks and the guy showing us round still had problems finding some of them, they are amazingly well camouflaged. (like milo).
It's wet in the cloud forest, and it’s not just cloud, it rains loads as well.
Had a guided walk in the forest today, it was pretty good, saw loads of birds including the resplendent quetzal, and the bell bird, it’s called this because it sounds like a bell.
They had some feeders for humming birds at the end of the walk, and we saw several types, getting a photo was a different matter. I got loads of pictures of the feeder with no birds, they just move so fast, by the time you press the button , all the little buggers have gone.
Had a couple of walks in the forest on our own, this was good without loads of people , saw lots of birds and insects and so many different fungi.
It has been quite cold today, so will be pleased to get down to the beach tomorrow, it should be warmer, and drier.
