Tom Vezo had arranged for feeders to be placed at various places in the grounds behind the Monteverde Lodge, in hopes of attracting birds to more favorable shooting locations. This was partially successful, and we did have some opportunities to shoot some Blue-crowned Motmots. These grounds, like those behind the Tortuguero Lodge, held quite a bit of wildlife, and we spent a fair amount of time exploring.
