High Praise for Selva Verde’s New Bridge
2019 Christmas Bird Count at Selva Verde Lodge
On December 14th, Selva Verde Lodge naturalists and friends were extremely pleased to participate in the annual Christmas Bird Count (CBC). The CBC is a survey of birds taking place every year in December at points all around the Western Hemisphere by volunteer birdwatchers. In Sarapiquí, the Count is organized by the nearby La Selva Biological Station and Selva Verde is assigned a route that includes the Lodge ground and reserve as well as neighboring areas. To cover as much ground as possible, Selva Verde had three teams on three different routes. All together the Selva Verde groups saw 204 species and a total of 1762 total birds seen by 14 participants. Selva Verde even added a totally new bird to its list, the Bay-headed tanager.
