    A group of 70 people participated this past weekend in the fourth bird count of Tortuguero National Park. The team of scientists, guides, volunteers, and experts in bird watching, recorded a record number: 186 migratory species and native to the area, 35 more than those recorded in the last three counts. As part of the first finds, the gorgiroja ant-tanager was identified, a species of which there was no recent record in the place.

    “We achieved a significant rebound compared to counts recorded in recent years, and it certainly fills us with pride as a reflection of the biodiversity in Tortuguero,” said Manuel Campbell, coordinator of this edition of the count and official of the national park.
