We were particularly impressed with this "oriole morning meeting" we witnessed. The one male with orange breast was glowing so brightly it looked like neon through the binoculars. I suspect he's "top bird" in this flock.
Castillo de San Felipe
The park proved to be a super interesting and beautiful spot, whether your tastes ran to history or flora and fauna. The entry fee of 20 Quetzales per person, or a little less than $3, was a ridiculous bargain (for a national park?!) We had a brief conversation in our very best "Spanglish" with the two friendly government workers who took our fee. Since were the only tourists there at that time, I am sure they were glad to see us.
The park was surrounded by water on three sides, and there were beautiful trees, foliage, and greenery on the walk to the fort, which lay at the end of the road.
