Day six began with a nice and leisurely last early morning in Granada. I was able to get up and out to get some last images of the area near the Colonial Hotel including the beautiful Catedral de Granada.
When we left Granada around 9:30 a.m. we headed towards the northern highlands and El Jaguar, passing through the northern city of Jinotega on the way. We did stop at a wetlands to see what types of bird life we could find. The three pictures below show men working the land to plant agricultural products such as corn. In many places in Nicaragua, people utilized oxen to assist in the plowing of fields as is illustrated in third picture.

But there were also birds!

When we arrived in El Jaguar it was beautiful and the sun was shining. We were immediately inundated with many species of birds as soon as we got off the bus near the lodge. Little did I know, that was about the only sun we had the entire time we were there! It is not called a cloud forest for nothing, that is for sure.
