Daily Birds

Hotel Sugar Beach has always been a prime location for birders and bird groups from around the world. Though a small country, Costa Rica is bird-rich, with over 893 recorded species, more than the US and Canada combined.

Here are just a handful of the beauties we see in our trees. We also post daily birds on our Facebook page where we ask followers if they can spot the difference between a yellow-bellied sapsucker and a shrike-tyrant. Please pop over and join the discussion!

No mistaking this Tiger Heron

The proud Black-headed Trogon
