Costa Rica national bird

Believe it or not this is our national bird, the clay-colored robin.  Of all the beautiful birds that you will find in this country this is the one that they choose, the reason is that it has a very beautiful song.  You will find this bird almost all throughout the country, you just won’t find it in the higher elevations.  You will find around 850 different species of birds in Costa Rica, giving it 1/10 of the biodiversity of the world.  It is truly amazing how many different species of animals, reptiles, insects and butterfly’s you will find in this tiny little country.  The blue morpho is the most beautiful butterfly I have ever seen and I occasionally get to see them flying through my yard.  You look at a map a see this teeny tiny little country, but once you get here and step inside, it’s like being in a whole other world, it feels so big.  There is so much to see and do you cannot do it all in one trip.  So make plans to come back again and again.  It is guaranteed that you will fall in love.  Pura Vida!
