Eyes Up!

It’s that magical time of the year when hawks and other kinds of birds are migrating to North America for the spring breeding season. We have had a message from Marco Saborio, photographer and birder extraordinaire, who says the weather on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica is not ideal, so many birds are likely to be passing overhead using an alternate Pacific side route. So we say, “Go outside! Look up! Watch for groups of migrating hawks!” and please let us know the species, number of individuals, date and time if you happen to see this awe-inspiring natural spectacle by going to the Contact Us page.
