The world is months into the pandemic and we all wonder when we might get back to some sort of normal. Most likely, it’s going to be a new normal, possibly one that brings innovations for better, eco-friendly travel options. When travel does come back into the picture, Costa Rica will be there. The opportunities to escape and experience the beauty of Costa Rica can’t come soon enough because the birds are also still here, always in Costa Rica, ready to be seen, photographed, and enjoyed.
With that in mind, we hope you enjoy these images of beautiful birds from Costa Rica. All are from the Costa Rica Birds Field Guide app. Enjoy!:
Great Green Macaw
Northern Emerald Toucanet
Hard to believe but these 57 species are just a small sampling of birds from Costa Rica (more than 900 are on the list, more than 2,000 images are on the app)! We can’t for you to escape to Costa Rica and enjoy them.
