Black Rock Birding:

Both novice and experienced birders will enjoy the spectacular setting that Black Rock Lodge offers while spotting Tanagers, Woodcreepers, Flycatchers, Vireos, Manakins, and Puffbirds.


On an early morning walk with one of the Lodge’s naturalist birding-guides you will have the opportunity to encounter: all 3 species of Toucans, the Olive-throated Parakeet, Lineated and Pale-bill Woodpeckers, Trogons, King Vultures, the Golden-hooded Tanager, the Purple-crowned Fairy, and both the Tody and Blue-crowned Motmot.


A canoe trip down the Macal will enable encounters with Herons, Orependulas, Swallows, Rails, Swifts, and Vultures.


A venture through the rainforest on Black Rock’s Night Hike will allow for Owls, Nightjars, and Potoos.


And the elevation of the Lodge affords frequent sighting of raptors such as the Ornate Hawk-Eagle, Orange Breasted Falcon, White Eagle, Great Black-Hawk, Grey Hawk, Common Black-Hawk, and Laughing Falcon.


Black Rock’s passionate commitment to birding and bird conservation is evident through guest interaction with our dedicated Naturalist Guides, our friendly and caring Staff, and the care and attention to the upkeep and maintenance of the Lodge’s grounds.
