Tropical Feathers - Costa Rica Birdwatching
Birding tours in Costa Rica with Tropical Feathers: We are a 100% Costa Rican Birding Tour Operator that offers high quality bird watching tours for both the avid and novice birders. In addition to our extensive technical training in eco-tourism and natural resources management, we can boast of over 16 years experience in designing eco-friendly birding tours to Costa Rica's diverse coastal, wetland, montane, dry and rainforest habitats.

Laughing Falcon As an owner operated birding tour company, we are able to bring personalized attention to every single detail of our tours. By doing so we can make sure both individual clients or group participants get the best birding experience possible during their stay in Costa Rica.

Our interest and involvement in conservation efforts is an important part of our companys ethos. Tropical Feathers sponsors the Fila Costera Bird Count in the Southern Pacific part of the country. This count seeks to provide a better understanding of the bird species and populations in the area, while at the same time encouraging conservation efforts. We feel this encourages and attract a more environmentally concerned type of tourism.

Your birding tour with Tropical Feathers also helps support our educational efforts which seeks to involve more Costa Ricans in the delights and challenges of observing and preserving birds and their natural habitats. We at Tropical Feathers do this by organizing and supporting workshops that endevour to help both students and locals learn about birds
in their beautiful country.

Noel Ureņa Our guide and co-owner, Noel Ureņa, has lead nature trips since 1997. He is also the founder, organizer and compiler of the Fila Costera Bird Count. His interest in nature and birding has been with him since he was a kid. A whole life in direct contact with the natural environment of Costa Rica has helped him to develop sharp birding and observational skills that will contribute to the success of every birdwatching tour. His enthusiasm for every trip is evident at all times. He is always delighted to walk the extra mile to share Costa Rica's bird life with you.

Besides offering trips, our web site also includes an extensive Costa Rica Bird Photo Gallery which is continually updated. A complete Costa Rica bird list along with continually updated trip reports. A regional and Costa Rican endemic species list is also available on the website as well.

Enjoy the site and we hope to see you join us on one of our trips!

S101 Common Birds of Costa Rica

"A Very Special Treatment of
Costa Rica's
Avian Treasures!

By Cynthia Melcher, on January 4, 2016

My husband and I had the recent honor of being participants on a 2-week trip with one of this book's co-authors, Noel Ureña Chacón, so we already knew that his knowledge of Costa Rican birds was as profound as his attention to important details in renditions of birds. His enthusiasm for his homeland's avian treasures was boundless, and it shows in this book of gorgeous artwork by artist co-author, Bryan Pollock. The book reminds me---in scope, beauty, and vision---of the original (subscription) volumes of John James Audubon's paintings of North American birds. The little snippets of text that accompany each bird painting provide interesting anecdotes about each species' ecology or behavior... an added dimension to the exquisite artwork that will help readers enjoy the bird paintings even more. Although anyone who appreciates birds and/or natural history works of art will enjoy this book, it us a must-have keepsake for anyone who has been to (or plans to go to) and had the privilege of enjoying Costa Rica's birdlife in person."
