Birds at Finca Cántaros

As the nature reserve at Finca Cántaros has steadily matured as most of the finca was gradually converted from pasture to forests and gardens beginning in 1994, the bird life at the Finca has also improved, with over 200 species now on the Finca Cántaros bird list. (See below.)

The owners maintain a private bird feeder behind their cottage as well as a bird feeder at the Mirador for visitors, both stocked with bananas and occasional bits of papaya. Both attract a lot of the local birds and the occasional migrant, especially during the wet season. Below is a video of about half-an-hour’s worth of bird feeder activity edited down to under 3 minutes.
