Sounds of Las Tangaras

April 23, 2014

We humans are known to have 5 senses; touch, taste, smell, sight and hearing. To date this blog has centred on one of these, sight, very thoroughly and we have shared countless words and photographs in an attempt to give our readers some kind of insight into life at Reserva Las Tangaras. As effective as this form of communication has been there is one sense that we have access to over the internet that has been unknowingly neglecting over the years, that of hearing. When it comes to Las Tangaras, hearing is stimulated at least as much as our sense of sight, if not more, and any description of the experience that is Las Tangaras could never be complete without the sounds of the reserve being given a fair representation.
The following blog includes recordings some of the more vocal wildlife that can be found at Las Tangaras. Each of these species have been heard numerous times during our time here and will forever be a part of our memories of Las Tangaras.
