Check out the bird list of species seen to date, many of whom depend on this migration corrider.
There is a 1000 meter elevation gradient ascending from about 1,600 meters at the entrance to 2,630 meters at the peak of Mount Totumas bordering the site. Many species common on the reserve, like the Resplendent Quetzals or Three-Wattled Bellbirds, are altitudinal migrants whose movements during the seasons follow their food sources. Preserving this important corridor will insure healthy local populations of these species.
Mantled Howler Monkeys' calls on the Reserve amplify in their mist-shrouded cloud forest habitat. Morning echos the calls of these monkeys bouncing amongst the hills. This is a daily reminder that we are in a pristine habitat—reinforcing our goals of stewardship of the land, with preservation as the foundation for all of the site activities we plan.
