Birding Pirre ridge, Darien National Park. (1 Viewer)


Registered user
Last May, me and a group of friends, all from Costa Rica visited the Darien national park with the help of a local guide; Isaac Pizarro.

In resume we had the trip of our lifes with quality birds such as crested and harpy eagles, wing banded antbird, crimson bellied woodpecker and many other great birds.
Below you will find the links of the trip report I posted on my blog, I hope it helps birders planning to visit such an amazing place.
