COSTA RICA - 2013

Our group of nine ‘wingspanners’ enjoyed a superb, relaxed holiday in one of the world’s best birding 
locations. Costa Rica is truly a hot-spot for wildlife, where-ever we went there were new sights and sounds to 
enjoy. Our bird list reached just under 400 species and included some of the most exotic looking species 
found on earth. Our lasting memories will be of the beauty of the forest, mountains, rivers and valleys, and 
the fantastic diversity of the wildlife found there. We had many laughs along the way, everyone was in good 
spirits we enjoyed the food and the lovely friendly people of Costa Rica. Highlights were the boat trip along 
the River Tarcoles, the feeding stations at Rancho Naturalista, the huge number of birds at Palo Verde and 
finding the Black-crowned Antpitta in the ant swarms in Braulio Carillo Forest.
