two or three Muscovies came and went from this lagoon while we were there. I assume they are wild. This is likely a young bird.

This was interesting. I had on knee high rubber boots and was wading through muck at the edge of a lagoon looking for dragonflies. I got my foot stuck in the mud and was making quite a disturbance in the water trying to get unstuck. Suddenly there was a big splash right next to my foot and looking down there was about a 4 foot long caiman withing 12 inches of my boot. We stared each other down for about 20 seconds and I finally managed to get my tripod legs between the caiman and my foot and was able to free myself. All the time the caiman did not move. I took two shots of the critter and went on my way. Not sure if he was hungry or curious but neither of us was the worse for the encounter.

This sort of looked like a Red-eared Slider, but it was very large, perhaps 18" long. Not sure what species it might be.

Several Tropical Kingbirds were very vocal in the village. Couch's does not occur here and the voice was Tropical Kingbird.
