Sue and I joined Craig and Barbara Johnston for a tour to San Vito, Costa Rica in the cooler mountain elevations on the Panama border. We rented a 4x4 Suzuki to take us on a five day trip to Casa Botanica. The 1-1/2 hour drive took us to 3000'. It is bird heaven! Within the beautifully manicured grounds, the birds are attracted by flowering bushes and trees. Not a minute goes by without birds buzzing by, bird calls in the air, and stunning bird colorations to take in. Today, May 2nd, we visited a botanical garden a couple miles away. We saw and heard toucans, parrots, thrushes, hummingbirds, and tanagers. The gardens had orchid greenhouses, and major plant groups of palms, bananas, gingers, and many more. We climbed an observation tower overlooking the valley below. Numerous flowering trees were in bloom. It truly is a special place. Tomorrow we hope to go on a personal guided bird tour starting at 6am through 11am with a break for breakfast.
