Female Turquoise Cotinga Video

The enchanting colors of the male turquoise cotinga (Cotinga ridgwayi) make it one of the most gratifying birds to see whether you’re a declared bird-watcher or just an occasional hiker in the rainforest. The Osa Peninsula is well known for its immense biodiversity, including more than 365 bird species, and the turquoise cotinga is just one of the many frequent visitors that come to our cabins and restaurant deck in search of a tasty treat from the surrounding cecropia trees and figs.
