Scarlet macaw
Photographer: Susan Marshall
Location: Near Tarcoles, Costa Rica
My daughter and I were being driven from Manuel Antonio to the airport in San Jose by a local driver. We had told him we really wanted to see a scarlet macaw. Suddenly he pulled over to the side of the road and pointed out this bird, eating fruit in a tree right next to a busy highway. We were so excited!
