As we drove down the dirt road, we got our first great looks at European Bee-eater, which is a stunning bird! All along the road, larks flew up and perched on the fences. It took awhile to get used to identifying them but by the end of the morning, I was getting the hang of it and had seen five lark species.
|The European Bee-eater is quite a spectacular bird!|
|Crested Larks were the most numerous lark in the Santa Marta steppe.|
|Although the views through the scope were great,|
the digiscoped shots didn't turn out as well.
|The European Roller was one of the more colorful birds that we saw on our whole trip.|
|The Collared Pranticole looks like a combination of a shorebird and a swallow!|
|There were several Little Terns flying around the reservoir|
