Costa Rica 2016

18th February - 2nd March 2016

This bird photographing trip was planned along with two Norwegian birding companions. During the first several days we stayed at La Laguna del Lagarto Eco-Lodge, mainly to photograph King Vultures from a special hide, which was organised through Bence Máté's, Hide Photography company. During the last several days we stayed at Bosque del Rio Tigre Lodge on the Osa peninsular. At both these superb lodges which were situated in superb birding locations we used the services of birding guides provided, as well as the obligatory guide at La Selva Biological Station. All other locations, travel itinerary and lodges including the popular San Gerardo de Dota, were self-organised. Totally ca. 310 bird species were recorded and of course many of which were photographed.
