CAMAQUIRI ANNUAL BIRD COUNT (2020)
For a second year, Camaquiri was part of the Barra del Colorado Wildlife Refuge Bird Count.
An intrepid band of world class birders scoured and combed the Camaquiri Conservation Initiative’s 500 acres in good weather for as many species as they could find in the day and a half survey. An amazing 175 species of birds were seen on the property including 42 species new to the Camaquiri checklist! Among the new species observed were Southern Lapwing, Red-breasted Meadowlark, Song Wren, Dickcissel, Black-capped Pygmy-Tyrant, White-necked Puffbird, Black-crowned Antshrike and Scaly-breasted Hummingbird. When the new species are added to our checklist, the total number of species seen at Camaquiri will rise to 218 species.
With travel hopefully resuming to some extent by summer 2021, be sure to think of Camaquiri as a must-visit location for birding in Costa Rica, you won’t be disappointed!
