Dry season is bird nesting season. Especially in March many birds are nesting and new chicks are being born. It’s an excellent time to go birding around the Osa Peninsula. Even right on Botánika’s property you can find many different bird species that live here year-around or migrate through.

Below is an example of a bird list created on the Botanika property by one of our Eco-guides.
