In March I traveled to Costa Rica to lead two photo tours. I was there nearly a month, including a bit of time off in between tours, so there was a lot of time for photography. I enjoyed both tours with my clients, who even undertook the challenge of Corcovado National Park with me. We ended up with plenty of fun and memorable wildlife encounters. I’ve segregated the trip photos into two galleries, with the Birds gallery being published first (the rest will go online next week).
When it comes to bird photography, my tours don’t focus on feeders as much as getting out and exploring in the rain forest. However, many of the lodges we stay at do have feeders, which means we are able to supplement many of our trail-based sightings with some nice photo opportunities on the lodge grounds. This trip was filled with cool bird sightings, from the Resplendent quetzal to my first encounter with the Black-and-white owl, to loads of toucans, woodpeckers and smaller colorful birds.
