Resplendent Quetzal - San Gerardo, Costa Rica

After a night in San Jose, we picked up the hire car and headed to the cloud forest. We stayed 2 nights at Trogon Lodge, San Gerardo de Dota, a prime location for most birders number one target bird in Costa Rica; the Resplendent Quetzal. One was seen at the lodge within an hour of arriving although it was the following morning when taken to a private site, when cracking views of up to 6 birds were had.
