Hilda Morales - Owner
People ask us which birding site we prefer. It is hard to answer, as we like both El Yunque National Forest and the
mountains in the western region. While in El Yunque you stay in the forest during the whole day and you travel less,
Maricao allows you to see the endemics spending more time on the road. The solution? We have listened and
improved the Maricao experience adding more time in the mountains. Join us!
A one hour drive takes us to the small
mountainous town of Maricao, home of
endemic species, such as the
Elfin-woods Warbler and Puerto Rican
Tanager. This is basically a birding road
trip as there are no trails in Maricao,
which makes it an excellent option for
slow mobility birders.
What to expect? Possible endemics
will be Elfin-Woods Warbler, Tody,
Tanager, Spindalis, Adelaide´s Warbler,
Emerald, Bullfinch, Green Mango, Lizard
Cuckoo, Vireo, Oriole, Woodpecker,
Flycatcher; plus near endemics, such
as: Lesser Antillean Pewee, Loggerhead
Kingbird, and Antillean Euphonia.
Rare bird species: Broad-winged and
Sharp-shinned Hawks. As per the last
census, only 17 Sharp-shinned Hawks
survived after hurricane María.
Other species? Pearly-eyed Thrasher,
Bananaquit, Antillean Mango, Venezuelan
Troupial, migratory warblers.
