Few countries in the world offer as many different species of birds in such a small area as Costa Rica.
Toucans are commonly seen and heard around Punta Dominical.
To the south, in Corcovado National Park, visitors can see the beautiful and rare Scarlet Macaws.
An experienced field guide who knows the area and also the bird calls is essential for anyone who is seriously interested in seeing birds.
A Guide to the Birds of Costa Rica by F. Gary Stiles and Alexander F. Skutch, is a great resource for visiting birders.
