The White-bellied Wren treated us to its song and looks in the local cacti. On down the road to Boca Toma II we enjoyed a pair of White-crowned Parrots looking at us from their nest. A boat ride on the Rio Frio gave us good looks at the Amazon Kingfisher and Boat-billed Heron. The Sungrebe was a no show - perhaps to more activity on this river. Our lunch at the Boca Toma II restaurant was under a palapa. More
