Nosara is one of the costa rica’s best bird-watching destinations, containing much bird species, roughly 270 . Of that, 19 species are globally threatened.
No matter where you go, the best time for bird watching is at first light, with that in Nosara being around the standard 5,6 am (given its equatorial location). For the best chance of seeing many birds in a short time, you can go to see them in such places as nosara´s river mouth and it´s jungle
To really experience each place and optimize your chance of identifying a bird, make sure to go with a local naturalist, biologist, or tour guide who works closely with local experts. Each area is home to specific species and it is overwhelming to learn — let alone access — these places without local knowledge.
Experience Nosara takes you out into the river ecosystem and the tropical dry forest inside Lagarta Lodge’s private reserve for birding-specific tours, led by a biologist/ornithologist.. http://www.experience-nosara.com
