Photo of the day: this Red-rumped Agouti was seen under one of the mango trees right before nightfall. Agouti's are common rodents seen in Kabalebo. Most of the time quite shy and alert. But if you don't bother them at all and disrespect their personal space they will not move away. There was something about the natural light that made this Agouti photogenic for me.
I spotted this Osprey (Pandion Haliaetus) when it was flying over the lodge. A large bird of prey that lives from fish. Most of the time I have seen them flying over with their catch but this time it was not its lucky day. I am guessing that it is trying its luck at another spot.
I spotted this couple Turquoise Tanagers (Tangara mexicana) in this Cecropia tree, locally known as Bospapaja boom. Their colors is what makes them pop out and make them visible for me. Common birds in Kabalebo but very elusive ones too. Took me a while to capture them.
I spotted a group of Common Squirrel Monkeys 'robbing' this Inga tree. Something they are always doing. I noticed this mother with her baby, clinging onto her back while she was also looking for food. Strong little one as the mother was jumping from branch to branch and was also moving fast.
This Yellow-crowned Tyrannulet (Tyrannulus elatus) looks in this picture like a big bird but in reality is almost 10 cm big. I had to zoom in to capture him. One of the most common Tyrannulets in Suriname, but also a bit difficult to see easily. You will hear him most of the time before spotting him. A small and energetic bird that doesn't like to sit still in one place.
This Tyrannulet is also known as the 'free beer' bird because his calling sounds like he is continously calling for free beer.
