birderFILattice House is a paradise for birders. Walk the grounds, hike the jungle trails, or just sit on the balconies and observe dozens of species a day, all year long.

 In addition, there are great birding reserves and parks with expert birding guides within a short drive of the house–Hacienda Baru, Ora Verde Reserve, Rio Sierpe, and Carara National Reserve.


The species listed below were observed at Lattice House mostly within a week’s time in June 2010. The pictures were all taken at Lattice House and the beach below.
