Please enjoy my amateur photos of some cloud forest Costa Rican birds, some of my favorites. These include the Talamancan Hummingbird, the acorn woodpecker, the White Throated Mountain Gem, the Scarlett Tanager, and the Silver Throated Tanager (feel free to correct these if they are wrong, it’s been almost a year since I took these!) Costa Rica has some really great conservation programs for their cloud forests, rain forest, wetlands, and desert areas, some implemented in just the last decade or two. Happy Bird Conservation Week!

A local fisherman in Costa Rica nursed a crocodile back to health after it had been shot in the head and released the reptile back to its home. The next day, the man discovered “Pocho” had followed him home and was sleeping on the man’s porch. For 20 years, Pocho became part of the man’s family.

My mom and sister were watching me put marbles on one of those marble race tracks with a bunch of different themes: Costa Rica, Halloween, and the Cold War.

Everyone has to know that in Latin America every little thing that you do it may be the reason of losing your loved ones, your freedom or either your life being taken from you,
If you take the bus, you lose your life.
If you go to protest peacefully, you lose your life.
If you are a woman, you lose your life.
If you are a student, you lose your life.
If you are an activist in favor of monarch butterflies, you lose your life.
If you just want to be free, you lose your life.
If you only want to bring food to your house for you and your family, living honestly, you lose your life.
If you are a person who wants better opportunities to live, you lose your life
And what about us? Those who are still alive.
The fear is terrifying, the doubt if I will see my family again is terrifying.We haven't lost our lives yet, but they're not letting us live either.
Being Latino its not how you see it in the movies. Something dreamy where you only dance and laugh. Being latino means fighting and surviving. Being latino its not a cool thing as everyone thinks, Latin America is not all rosy as they paint it. In Latin America, if you demand rights, they'll kill you..In Latin America If you want to make a change the people will never see you alive again. Thats the horrible reality in here.
