Costa Rica A Birding Paradise Full Of Birds

Black-crested Coquette one of the first birds we enjoyed on day one.

This was our fourth Birdwatching Trips tour to Costa Rica and as always it was packed with birds, some 400 species in just two weeks and lots of fun. Costa Rica is a small country so we can enjoy lots of time enjoying the birds rather than on the road. The amazing diversity of habitats in a small area provide amazing numbers of species and what wonderful species they are! The hotels and lodges are excellent and the food wonderful, it is a very safe and friendly country so you can see why we call it a birding paradise! Here are a few of the highlights...

The beautiful Snowcap, a tiny hummingbird, showed off for us.

Think of Costa Rica and you think Toucans, a Yellow-throated Toucan here.

A Red-legged Honeycreeper looks about to fall prey to a Clay-coloured Thrush!

Boat trips are always popular, even in the rain, great views of Amazon Kingfisher.

The same boat trip provided super looks at Bare-throated Tiger-Heron.

Another real star of the tour - Fiery-throated Hummingbird in the highlands.

And THE star of the show the male Resplendent Quetzal just mind-blowing!!

We would love you to join us on our Birdwatching Trips for the very best birds, wildlife and a lot of fun! Small groups, just six guests, with at least two often three guides. Not many companies can offer such exceptional customer care. We stay in lovely places, enjoy great food and have a good nights sleep! We know you will love a Birdwatching Trips holiday. For details or to book your tour please email us here....

We look forward to enjoying amazing birds with you soon!
