The farm has a lot of other wildlife besides bugs.In the mornings from the breakfast table I watch toucans, masked tityras, blue-crowned motmots, and the occasional oropendola foraging in the fig try full of ripe fruits.In the evenings the parrots and parakeets are busy foraging making raucous noises wherever they go.This is only punctuated by the sounds of cicadas or frogs hiding out in trees and bushes. Without fail, every night by the dinner table, I will look out the window to see a large can toad hopping about.
One night Nery asked me if I wanted to go frog hunting, so we took a flashlight into the back yard only to find 'tink' frogs in her orchids.She was telling me that there are other dark ones she usually finds too, but we were unsuccessful on that account.She also told me that sometimes they keep her awake at night.
On another occasion a hummingbird got stuck in their glassed-in patio and was trying to get out.Nery gracefully caught it and made sure to show it to me before letting it fly away.Its heart beat soo fast and it crazily stuck out its snake like tongue searching for nectar.It was beautiful, but I was glad to let it go.
Last night Victor went bug hunting and brought back the ones that light up.We played with it on the table for awhile.It was a good time.
