Daily Birds

Posted on: April 30th, 2011 by Sugar

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!

Though he might be common, the Rufous-naped Wren has an uncommonly sweet song


No mistaking this Tiger Heron


The proud Black-headed Trogon
