"Our first stop would be at the Alambi," he said. Alambi Cloud Forest Reserve was indeed a must-see place for birders. It is a hummingbird heaven!

Finally, we arrived at Sachatamia. We settled in our cottage and then surveyed the surrounding area. And got good looks at a Masked Trogon.
We said goodbye to Luis. He was technically a guide because he is familiar with the roads, trails, paths and lanes of the birding spots. He even knew the owners of those places personally. Not only that he is an expert on local birds. Before leaving he said, "Look for the owl at the parking area at night."
However, we were so exhausted that as soon as we returned to our cottage, we were out like a rock.
