Birdwatching in the area


For those less familiar with neotropical bird life, Toucans, Aracaris, Tanagers and Honeycreepers, many of them brightly colored, may be seen around the Casitas Tenorio premises, especially at breakfast when a steady stream normally visits the fruit put out for them. For the more experienced birder, Bijagua is the place to see Tody Motmot and Rufous – vented Ground – Cuckoo, though neither of these birds is easily seen, and the latter is distinctly seasonal and highly dependent on the presence of army ant swarms. These birds are found in primary rain forest located about 800m from Casitas Tenorio. Donald has worked for many years as a birding guide. Please contact us for more details about his guiding services

There is a chance of seeing other rarities in the local area:

  • Ornate Hawk – Eagle
  • Yellow – eared Toucanet
  • Lovely Cotinga
  • Bare – necked Umbrellabird
  • Yellow – winged Tanager
  • Keel – billed Motmot
  • Great curassow
  • Three wattled bellbird
  • Dull mantled antbirds
  • Lattive tailed trogon
  • Brownhooded parrot
  • White collared manikin
  • Ruffous winged tanager.

Amongst the less common hummingbirds, Snowcap, Purple – crowned Fairy and the two Starthroat species are to be seen in the vicinity. The black crested coquette is also a regular visitor to our gardens

Donald has an incredible wealth of knowledge about the diversity of wildlife, birds, plants, and the environment. Donald was so generous with his time. He helped us t o see sloths, coati, kinkajou, and over 25 species of birds while sitting in the breakfast area that overlooks the forest. The most wonderful part is that you do not even need to leave the property!

What more can I say! This is our fifth visit to Casitas Tenorio and each time is the best. We had 110 species of birds in two days .Originally we came here for birding which is always excellent, but now we return because of our most welcoming hosts, Donald and Pippa and their extended family.

This is a marvellous little bed and breakfast, 2.5 kilometers outside Bijagua, which combines all the best features of rural tourism in Costa Rica. Extensive wildlife in the area (saw mother & baby sloth onsite, kinkajou and incredible variety of bird species). I’m not a birder but the seven toucans at breakfast were a great treat as well as hummingbirds and more. C. Fan Chicago, USA

Nothing beats watching toucans, hummingbirds, oropendolas, and woodpeckers with a cup of c offee in one hand and your camera in the other.

More than expected

We drove to the Casitas Tenorio B&B and were graciously greeted by Donald. We stayed in Casita la Luna. Perfect for a couple. Equipped with all you need for a comfortable stay. Don’t sleep in! The morning is the best part. Got to milk my first cow on a quick farm tour be fore breakfast. Breakfast is served in viewing of  all kinds of beautiful birds eating fruit carefully positioned in the trees so all can see. I had a hard time eating a scrumptious wholesome breakfast and taking pictures and pointing out birds. We even saw a squirrel, After breakfast, you can take a tour around the trails with Donald.. We saw lots of fruit trees, howler monkeys, a sloth coming down the tree, and the beautiful vistas. Donald and Pip give you a wonderful feeling of serenity, comfort and security. Truly great hosts and staff. Only regret, we didn’t stay another nite.
