Bird watching II

In the magnificent Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve:

And the pride and joy of the Monterverde Cloud Forest Preserve, The Resplendent Quetzal

Friends, the fact we got to see this beautiful bird made this trip even sweeter. It is very rare to see this beauty. Luckily, we were in Costa Rica during mating season which increased our chances by a lot. As you can see we got a full view of him (we know its a him because the female stays in the nest while the male hunts for food - never too far from the nest, though) thanks to our uber awesome guide (I highly recommend getting a guide when visiting the Preserve). We got an even closer look with our binoculars. A fantastic look at what nature has to offer, for sure!
