Savegre Hotel Natural Reserve Birds
Our second lodge was Savegre Hotel Natural Reserve which is located at 7000 feet. Holbrook Travel had arranged for Marino to take us to the
good birding locations.
Our first morning, we rose early to go see the Resplendent Quetzal. They feed on avocados and are best photographed in the early light.
We came back the second morning leaving even earlier at 5:30 see the Quetzal.
Note the avocados in this picture. The Quetzal swallow the avocado, digest it, and then later in the day cough up the seed.
