Costa Rica: The Whirlwind Tour

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).
