Beginning Birding Tour

Birding 101 !

Ever wonder what birding entails?  Learn about this hobby, especially for beginners!  Pasión Costa Rica offers a private “Beginning Birding” tour in Monteverde, Costa Rica, home to 250 species of birds.  It’s a perfect way to get a better idea of what bird watching really means.  The tour starts with a brief explanation of birdwatching basics; you’ll learn how to train yourself in colors, foods, behavior, sizes, rareness, and sounds.  You’ll also learn the dynamics of the forests of the Monteverde area, how to properly use binoculars and telescope, how birders’ minds work, how to start a bird list, and observe whatever birds we can find in the forest that day.  We especially look for bellbirds, quetzals, orange bellied trogans, and hummingbirds.  Binoculars, transport, entrances fees to the trail, a spotting scope, guide fields and guide are provided on the tour.
