|Harpy Eagle (immature)|
"On February 16 Elliott Whitby, Ardith Ekdahl, Gordon Greer and Denise Orr were taken on a birding tour by boat up the Bartola River from Refugio Bartola. The guide was Juan Jose. At approximately 9:30 the guide told us a Harpy Eagle was passing over the boat. It landed in an adjacent tree and we all got wonderful views with our binoculars and three of us took pictures for about ten minutes. According to (eBird country reviewer Liliana Chavarria) it is the first sighting of a Harpy Eagle in 15 years in Nicaragua."
