Next month, I will be heading off to Costa Rica to see many of the tropical bird species that occur there. The country boasts a list of almost 900 bird species and is one of the most popular birding destinations in the world. It’s my first trip to Costa Rica and there are a lot of birds for me to learn but luckily there are many species in Costa Rica that I have previously seen in Honduras.
I’ll be spending two weeks traveling around Costa Rica and visiting some of it’s best known birding spots. We’ll travel from Rancho Naturalista to Savegre and then on to the northern part of the country where we will visit Laguna del Lagarto and Selva Verde Lodge. From Selva Verde, we will visit the world famous La Selva Biological Station that boasts the highest species total in all of Costa Rica!
This trip also gives me to opportunity to find two of the birds that I listed in my post Top 5 Birds I Want to See in 2014. I could have the chance to observe both Scarlet Macaws and Resplendent Quetzals!
I’ll be posting updates and photos from the trip here so stay tuned to see some of the amazing species that I see and photograph! Take a guess as to how many species I will see during my two week trip in the comments and I’ll post a final total once I return home.
