Sulphur-Winged Parraket
A parakeet with a big body and a long, pointed tail. Most easily identifiable when in flight, when the wings appear to be most brilliant yellow. When the bird is perched, check for a red patch on its cheek that is distinct from that of any other parakeet in the area.
Red-Billed Tropicbird
Spectacular seabird that can only very seldom be observed from land, but can be located locally on rocky islands close to the coast. Typically observed as solitary birds perched on the water or as couples racing and shrieking about cliffs, frequently at great heights above the ground.
Nicaraguan Seed Finch
The absence of colouration on this bird is more than compensated for by its absurdly disproportionately large beak. The female is a warm brown color, while the male is completely glossy black. The bill of the male is enormous and bright pink, while the bill of the female is similarly enormous but dark grey.
Black and Yellow Silky-flycatcher
A plump, fruit-eating bird whose taxonomic connections are not entirely clear. The shape, colouration, and short beak help to identify this bird. Males are predominantly black on top, although they have a yellow rump, dirty yellow breast and flanks, and a grey belly. Females are largely grey.
Golden-Bellied Flycatcher
The head of this large flycatcher has a striking black-and-white pattern, and its belly is a brilliant yellow. Maintain an upright stance. A somewhat lengthy bill. Comparable to a number of different types of flycatchers; distinguishing feature is the striking head design with the dark mustache stripe. Typically seen only alone or in pairs and inhabiting the margins or clearings of highland forests. Keep an ear out for a shrill squeaky-toy cry.
Silver-fronted Tapaculo
Tapaculos are little birds that are generally gray in color, have a plump body, short tails, and are sly like mice. The Silvery-fronted Tapaculo is the only species of tapaculo found in its region, and the male has a white eyebrow that sets him apart. Additionally, you should search for flanks that are browner and with black bars.
Lattice-tailed Trogon
This huge trogon has a pale eye, and it is the only one in its region that does. The male is green and red, and there is no white band that separates the breast from the belly; the female is similar, but she is gray-brown rather than green. A trogon in every other respect, with its characteristic upright stance, squared-off tail, and stocky yellow beak. Maintains a steady position at intermediate heights in the tree canopy while gently rotating its head in the direction of potential prey.
White-tailed emerald
Small hummingbird with restricted range in Costa Rica and western Panama. Male is mostly glittering emerald with a bright white lower belly and outer tail feathers. Female similar, but white extends up to the throat. Both sexes have relatively short and very slightly decurved bill. Compare with Snowy-bellied Hummingbird, which has coppery shoulders and rump and lacks white in tail. Found in the foothills of the Pacific slope, from around 800–2,200m, where it occurs in forest, edges, and gardens.
Spangle-cheeked Tanager
Beautiful tanager with a variety of colors, including turquoise spangles on the breast, cheek, and neck, as well as an orange belly and blue wings. The black mask. Distinct from every other species of tanager. Sexes alike. Birds of this size and activity level typically travel in pairs and follow mixed feeding flocks through woods and along forest borders. Feeds on fruit.
Central American Pygmy-owl
Very little owl that lives in moist evergreen forests in the lowlands of tropical regions and is active throughout the day. Favors the forest canopy, where it is difficult to spot, however it can occasionally be found hunting down to forest boundaries. The most common way to identify it is by its tooting cry, which may be heard at any time of day but is more prevalent in the morning and evening. Similar to the behavior of other pygmy owls, the presence of the owl is frequently disclosed by flocks of little songbirds.

At Tranquilo Bay, we believe that people who experience an authentic, regenerative vacation create treasured memories, but we know treasured memories do not come easy.

How do you make sure you pick the right vacation? Are the places you are considering transparent about their sustainability and regenerative practices?

We hope so. That is why we have created an IMPACT page (https://www.tranquilobay.com/impact/) so that we may tell you about the metrics we use to measure and course correct for our sustainability practices as we work our way
toward true regenerative practices. These measurements are detailed in the IMPACT Report that is available for download at the end of the page.

We know that the best measurement we can monitor is how we improve against ourselves not against a third party. Thus, we are monitoring specific metrics to determine how we are doing today and how things change over time.
