COSTA RICA - 2017

This was the sixth exciting WINGSPAN TOUR of Costa Rica and although we did not top the species total of last year’s impressive list of 465 we had a great time trying. A lovely group of people made this trip something special for myself and Roy, there were plenty of laughs along the way as we visited some fantastic birding locations. Long-tailed Silky Flycatcher was voted bird of the trip but several species came a close second such as: the iconic Resplendent Quetzal, Sunbittern, Red-capped Manakin, Fiery-billed Aracari and Acorn Woodpecker which all received votes.
