North-west Costa Rica Birding

Communidad Fish Ponds - October 2007

Next Page

The fish ponds lie south of the town of Communidad on the west side of the road to Belen. They consist of a series of rectangular ponds in fields adjacent to the road. Viewing is only from the road, which can be quite busy. We saw Laughing Falcon, hirundines and many of the regular waterbirds. It probably turns up the occasional less common waterbird.
