Striped cuckoo and Hoffmann’s woodpecker in Costa Rica

GESTREEPTE KOEKOEK EN HOFFMAN’S SPECHT IN COSTA RICA

Up in the hills, east of the Tarcoles river we saw this striped cuckoo and enjoyed its singing for quite a while. / Hoog in de heuvels ten oosten van de Tarcoles rivier zagen we deze gestreepte koekoek.

Listen to the cuckoo here: / Beluister deze koekoek hier:


On the other side of the road a flowering tree. / Aan de andere kant van de weg een bloeiende boom.

And further downhill, close to a side-stream of the Tarcoles river we saw this woodpecker. / En heuvelafwaarts vlak bij een zijstroompje van de Tarcoles rivier zagen we deze specht,
