This post covers Day 5 of our photography trip to Costa Rica. It’s been 5 days since my last post, but it takes time to go through the pictures and ID the birds, and I also have other things to do 🙂. Still three more days to go.
We were out at dawn birding around Bosque del Tolomuco lodge, from 6 AM to 8:30 AM. We hiked the road below the lodge, and the one above it (where there are orange trees), and spent some time at the feeders. Since we were at the feeders the night before, there are some ‘repeats’ in the photographs. We had breakfast at the lodge, and then headed up to the Cloud Bridge Nature Reserve (http://Cloudbridge.org), which is just before the entrance to Chirripó National Park. There were a lot of birds, and some waterfalls along the Rio Chirripó Pacifico (Chirripó Pacific River).
On the way back to the lodge we stopped at San Isidro for a late lunch, and then went to Mass. We stopped and bought some empanadas and brought them back to the room at Tolomuco for dinner.
Here are the pictures:
