Braulio Carrillo and La Paz Waterfall Gardens – Last Day in Costa Rica
Here are
just a few photos from the last two days of my recent tour to Costa Rica. We
spent our next-to-last morning at the verdant Braulio Carrillo National Park
just in the foothills on the very wet Caribbean slope. I recall last year
having to spend a fu...

A Full Day at Costa Rica's La Selva
Our last
four days in Costa Rica went by in a flash yet at the same time seemed to be as
full of experiences and sightings as the first nine days. On these days we were
on the more lush Caribbean slope, first in the foothills of the Tilarán range,
which are...

Black-capped Pygmy-Tyrant
Just one photo from Costa Rica today, though I have lots. Long days, lots of birds, and many other cool critters have made this a good tour. Today we birded La Selva Biological Station, seeing over 100 species of birds, most of them along less than 3 miles ...

Today was my first full day guiding my
19 th tour (20 th trip) in Costa Rica. We've
gotten off to a rather disjointed start. Since Volcán Turrialba blew
a big cloud of ash that drifted right over San José and its
international airport on Thursday mid-day, a...

Some Plants from Chaparrí Reserve
If you haven't been keeping up on my
blog the past week or so, I've been trying to bring attention to the WINGS tour to northern Peru that I'm slated to lead with Fabrice
Schmitt this coming July. Tell your friends about it.  I'm on my way to Costa Rica rig...

Sueño Azul Rancho Hotel Birding
We saw
enough cool stuff during just one morning, one afternoon, and on a couple night
walks at our Sueño Azul lodge to warrant its own blog. It’s an active cattle
ranch, but with brushy, regenerating pastures, many remaining old trees and
small patches of ...

Costa Rica Blog for March 21-22, 2015
I last left off when we arrived in
Monteverde, and now we have just one more day left on the tour. Time has flown. It's
been amazing to have virtually no rain on the tour. On one afternoon
at Savegre we had a brief shower when we pulled out our umbrellas fo...

From the Field Costa Rica – More from Bosque del Rio Tigre
Here's another quick update from Costa
Rica. Today we arrived in the Arenal area, with tons of fun
sightings, but since the previous blog was part of my From the Field
post to the WINGS website, I tried to keep it short, leaving out some
highlights from Bos...

Some Birds of Chaparrí Reserve
White-winged Guan is one of the reasons
that Chaparrí Reserve exists (the other being the Spectacled Bear).
Endemic to just NW Peru, it's one of the rarest birds in South
America, as pressures from habitat loss and hunting nearly wiped it
out. So a program ...

Some Chaparri Criters
Continuing the theme from my previous
posts, here
are some photos of the critters I saw in 2011 in the Chaparrí Reserve in northwestern Peru. Actually, first some photos of the
area. This is a view of the cabins, looking across the small stream
that divides...
