There were two of the thick-knees walking among the cows. This is in the dry area of CR close to the Pacific ocean. I added the last shot because I thought it was a bit fun and showed a little of the situation.

  2. I've seen a few thick-knee species, but never that one, I think. They are cool birds and always look either terminally bored/disapproving or outraged.

  9. A beautiful bird and a very healthy Brahma cow too. I'm glad you added her, it puts the bird in perspective.

  13. You would think that bird would be terrified of the huge cow, but no! Very cool pics.

I love comments so please write something. I usually responds to everyone on their own blogs. But nowadays I often find it impossible to comment on many blogs or on Google+. Often the word verifications is unreadable. And after three times I give up. Other times the systems seems to think I am a spammer. Lots of bloggers loose comments that way. :( So, if you don´t see me comment on your blog that is the reason.
