For anyone who doesn't have a big DSLR lens, this is the place for you to get some great bird photos. Of course, those with the big cameras will also find this the place to get closeups. And, if you want to go into the forest to explore, you can walk down to the Sarapiqui River and wander the pathways to discover more birds as well as amphibians, reptiles and mammals. And, if you just want to sit and watch the birds come and go, Dave (and Dave) have a covered deck with chairs for you to enjoy the sights.
Among the many species observed, we saw the white-necked jacobin, Montezuma oropendola, bay wren, purple-crowned fairy, bronze-tailed plumeleteer, collared aracari, red-throated ant-tanager, white-lined tanager, buff-throated saltator, and buff-rumped warbler. Down in the valley, the highlights were an orange-billed sparrow on a path, a pair of slaty-tailed trogons, a rufous motmot, and a wedge-billed woodcreeper.
Both Daves have lots of info on the birds and on the area. And they'll tell you the story of how this particular land was rescued so that we can all enjoy it.
Next time we're in Costa Rica, we'll be back
