Rare boat-billed heron returned to the Refugio

Alexander Tinti | December 3, 2023

We are excited that our conservation efforts bear fruits! The boat-billed heron (Cochlearius cochlearius) has returned to the Refugio Tinti and is now breeding at the pond in front of our volunteer bungalows. The boat-billed heron is a threatened species in Costa Rica which is sighted more and more rarely. It is encouraging us continue on our path.
