Birding

Positioned within eye-sight of the ocean and backing up to a cloud forest, Fuente is a perfect spot for birds of all kinds to make there home here. Additionally, we are on a migratory path for many other species so winged friends from other environs are seasonally seen here too. Our primary jungle trails, our various ponds, and our gardens and tree-lines all serve as homes to countless birds, with new species being discovered whenever sought out.  Below is a list of some of the species that have been positively identified on the farm.

"Birds are like people.  The bird is here because it's a good place.  There's food, and there's safety.  When a bird doesn't like a situation, it protects itself and stays away.  No matter where you are in the world, if you see a bird in a place, it's a good place, a safe place, a place that sustains life."  -- Enru Lin.
