I’m amazed by the number of fish-eating bird species are fed by the fish stock of the small Chalalan lake, in addition to caimans! Herons and cormorants are ravenous, so the rate of reproduction and diversity is incredible for a lake that has no inlet or outlet – it’s isolated from the Tuichi river..

I believe this heron is a seasonal visitor from north of the Equator…
