3-11 February 2018
After completing three months of intensive avian fieldwork in the Talamanca Highlands and Caribbean Coast, I have a little over a week to burn before leaving the country and am eager to see new landscapes and their associated birds. Below are some photo highlights from this nine-day circuit, which covered the southern foothills, the Pacific coastline including the the Osa and Nicoya Peninsulas, and lastly, the Volcán Arenal.
Note: The bird in the banner photo is a Silver-throated Tanager (Tangara icterocephala).
Broad-billed Motmot (Electron platyrhynchum)
Yellow-throated Toucan (Ramphastos ambiguus)
Buff-rumped Warbler (Myiothlypis fulvicauda)
Cherrie’s Tanager (Ramphocelus costaricensis)
Central American Squirrel Monkey (Saimiri oerstedii)
Cocoa Woodcreeper (Xiphorhynchus susurrans)
Speckled Tanager (Ixothraupis guttata)
Chestnut-sided Warbler (Setophaga pensylvanica)
Brown Pelicans (Pelecanus occidentalis) from the Nicoya Peninsula ferry.
Double-striped Thick-knee (Burhinus bistriatus)
