A trip to the cloud forest
We had a specific bird in mind though as we moved through the forest looking and listening.
After a short while our guide stopped and trained his attention toward the sounds coming from the Avocado tree just off the trail. "Here's one", he said as he deftly trained his scope on our quarry.
Resplendant Quetzal, male, Monteverde 10/5/07
Moments later I was staring once again in the amazing Resplendant Quetzal... seven visits to Monteverde Reserve and I've seen this bird each time! My streak was still alive.
