Costa Rica Birds and Wildlife

We just returned from a trip to Costa Rica and visited many different habitats from dry tropical forest, wet tropical lowlands, cloud forests and coastal mangrove.There were a wide variety of birds, mammals and reptiles photographed.The birds included many Hummingbird species,Trogons, Toucans, Motmots, Herons, Warblers, Tanagers, Owls, Hawks, Kites, Orioles, and Oropendola, Macaws, Parrots, and Woodpeckers.We stayed at remote lodges in at least 5 areas.Tropical Birding organized and led the trip and did an excellent job of finding birds and locations.It really is necessary to have a guide to find many of the birds as they are not always that obvious. We will be updating with new posts with more images in the coming weeks.
