If I were maintaining this blog for fame or fortune, I’d be in the gutter by now! But since it’s just for me (and a few of mine), I will randomly post a list of the birds we saw in Costa Rica back in 2016.
Beth, Bill and I took several lovely walks near their house, which was nestled in the side of a hill and looked out over a thickly wooded ridge (they’ve since moved). Sitting on the deck, we had a great view of all kinds of birds. We also walked up to the Cloudbridge Nature Reserve, and took another walk near their previous house, through a small village and through the woods. However, it was very windy the couple days that I was there, so we didn’t see quite as many birds as we might have.
Here’s a list, along with pictures that are mostly not from me.
toucanet (emerald) – this is such a classic tropical bird that it was very exciting to see it!
turkey vultures (we all know what they look like)
Baltimore oriole (ditto)
