Hawk-Eagle Sweep in Costa Rica
JUNE 22, 2019
Like a Northern Goshawk on steroids with fancy plumage, these birds can take small monkeys, opossums, ibis, toucans, macaws, and other medium-sized animals of the rainforest. A major year bird, one of my partner’s most wanted species, I hope I can go back to that site with her and refind this hunter of oropendolas, guans, and other large birds. The tropical habitats of Costa Rica are home to a surprising number of raptor species.
