The Republic of Costa Rica

Small-country, located in Central America, south from Nicaragua and Northwest from Panama.

This country offers to all wildlife, but especially birds, food-plants that can be the harvest, from either protected area or land designated to farm, such as coffee-plantations, sugarcane fields, cattle pastures to mention some of the stilted habitats. This mix of primary or non-touch forest and manmade landscape enrich the possibilities of getting a new species for your life-list.    

The geological events that led to the creation of a bridge between what is today known as North America and South America are known as Costa Rica nowadays.
