On the drive up to Caño Negro, high mountains gave way to rolling hills, and finally the lowlands up towards the Nicauraguan border.

I arrived in time to walk along the side of the marshlands and, even from this limited viewpoint, the prospect looks enticing. As the dry season (November to March) progresses, the wetland area decreases and the birds congregate in more concentrated areas. So the timing is just about right. At the same time, reports indicate that the number of birds has decreased over the last decade or so, a reflection of the worldwide stress on wildlife populations (thanks for that, Kim Orlando).

Looking for a caption for this. Reptile in 3 parts?

Watch those roads John. I hope they are better than when we went. It was not unusual to round a corner and find that one half or the other of the road was not there or inaccessible.
