I would like to share with you a portion of Jan’s April newsletter: I quote Jan, ” The Costa Rica national bird, the Yiguirro has filled the air with a chorus of melodious sounds for the past month of March. Their songs begin at 4:30 a.m. and continue all day until sundown. Costa Rica folklore says the Yiguirro is singing for rain.”
“We are in the month of April, when the first rains come. The trees sprout new buds and the grass smells sweet, , and the beautiful tropical landscape bursts into 1000 shades of green.”
