Get your Birds!

Ujarrás

Make your lunch an experience, not just a meal

Undoubtedly the best spot in Costa Rica to see Prevost’s Ground-Sparrow, Ujarrás offers fabulous birding within its mosaic of habitats. It is largely agricultural and dominated by two main crops, coffee and chayote*, as well as small villages and parks with well kept gardens. This is the best place to look over Lake Cachí and the forested buffer along its shores. You can easily spend a full day exploring the narrow roads that weave around the different farms, and when you get hungry just drop in at our site and eat with the birds!

The diversity of the Valley

 

Bird diversity here is incredible. In a day you can see a variety of water birds such as Wood Stork, Green Ibis and Masked Duck, raptors including Bat Falcon and Hook-billed Kite, as well as species that typically occur at lower elevations such as Slaty Spinetail, Black-headed Tody-Flycatcher and even Sunbittern.  The number of hummingbirds present during most of the year have earned Ujarrás the nickname of “hummingbird valley,” with an interesting mix of some of the most spectacular Costa Rican hummingbird:  Black-crested and White-crested Coquette, Canivet’s and Garden Emerald, Green Thorntail, Blue-throated Goldentail, Costa Rica´s largest and smallest hummers, Violet Sabrewing and Scintillant Hummingbird, as well as the migratory Ruby-throated Hummingbird.

At Get Your Birds! Our diversity of feeding stations and flowers attract a great deal of the species present in the valley, making it easier to view them as they feed and bathe.  For a complete list of birds at our site                   .
