Palmarum Posted September 7, 2008 Author Report Share Posted September 7, 2008 2008 IPS Biennial - Costa Rica Day 05: Wednesday, May 7th Arenal Hanging Bridges, Arenal Volcano Group 2, Buses #3 & #4 - 1:11PM: While standing at the end of the Arenal View Bridge, I noticed the trail did a hairpin turn and wrapped around under the bridge. FM. Ron Kiefert (moose knuckle) spots a grouping of Geonoma cuneata growing above the trail just within reach. - 1:13PM: I was able to wait a few moments and use the same spot to get a portrait of Linda and Bill. It was a fact that by now, the majority of our group was far ahead as we reached the two hour mark of the trail tour. - 1:14PM: We took a moment to pet a small Bactris hondurensis found along the edge of the trail. - 1:21PM: The last bridge disappeared behind us and we began to descend slightly along the trail. We entered an area that was rich with avian life. A branch was crossing the trail just a few feet off the ground and sitting upon it was this Broad-billed Motmot, Electron platyrhynchum. It was quite content with us getting real close. I didn't believe the genus name when Jorge told me, but it is correct. Ryan South Florida Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
