Scarlet macaws at a "beach almond feast"!

Scarlet macaws (ara macao) or "lapas rojas" are frequent visitors to the grounds of El Remanso Lodge. These beautiful birds inhabit a large area of the Osa Peninsula and according to scientific data, they have been thriving with a steady population increase over the last decade. One of their favourite "meals" is the fruit of the beach almond tree (Terminalia catappa). The abundance of these trees next to the new pool deck make this a perfect place for the observation of these beautiful creatures.
