Bienvenidos a Monteverde...COSTA RICA (24 Feb)

Well, today was to be our first day in Costa Rica's flagship park: MONTEVERDE, arguably the most popular and well-known cloud forest reserve in the World. However, before we had even got there we had enjoyed a pre-breakfast pair of White-eared Ground-Sparrows (much to a few people's relief who had missed them on the opening day), and from the BUS, en-route to the park we had to "endure" close-ups of a male Orange-bellied Trogon; and then, on arriving in the park itself, our bus was prevented from parking for a good five minutes while this Buff-fronted Quail-Dove fed within our parking space. I was getting a good feeling about this place, and I had yet to set foot on its soil!

More Costa Rica cloud forest favorites to come, very soon...
