Good Morning Everyone,
My wife and I just returned from a magical trip to Costa Rica. We visited areas around Arenal Volcano, Playa Tamarindo, Rio Tarcoles and the highlands of San Gerardo De Dota. Aside from seeing both three toed and two toed sloths (one with a baby), monkeys and crocodiles, we managed to see tons of birds. So much of this was possible because of suggestions made by members of this listserve! Overall I racked up more than 100 LIFERS!
Bird highlights included:
Golden-headed Tanagers Long-tailed Silky Flycatchers Spotted Wood-Quails Keel-billed and Yellow-Throated Toucans Scarlet Macaws Bare Throated Tiger Herons Fiery-throated Hummingbirds A Mourning Warbler Gartered Trogans And 8 RESPLENDENT QUETZALS !!!
