Each finding carries a story, such as the Bicolored Hawk that Esteban located too far for my eyes to see, or the special side trip just to see the Gray-throated Leaftosser. Unforgettable trip, one that I need repeat in April when the "aguacatillo" ripens attracting the Resplendent Quetzal. Esteban has rejuvenated by passion for going to Monteverde!"..."
