Also was enjoying the holiday too much to get into the tech side of things - didnt touch a phone for 3 weeks - it was great!
I am just going to upload a few photos with brief comments rather otherwise the blogs will take ages to read.
Thanks to Yehudi and Rodrigo for guiding and driving us around Costa Rica - it was great, and to Cotinga Tours for arranging everything for us - it went very smoothly - except when we were trapped in the hotel by road workers.
Our tour took us to:
- Cerro de la Muerte / Savegre area
- Villa Lapas / Carara area
- Selva Verde
- Finally we had a few days recovery at Quepos / Manuel Antonio
Birding usually started before 6:00am everyday with a break around lunchtime then out again around 14:00, we also had a couple of evenings owl watching - which proved very successful.
There were 9 of us on the tour 4 Brits, 3 Americans and 2 Aussies so there were differing levels of knowledge of the birds - the best of who was an 80 year American woman - Dorothy, who was very switched on and was interested in getting new birds (and she knew which ones she wanted).
So onto some birds photos.
