The Broad-winged hawk (Buteo platypterus) is a small hawk of the Buteo genus. During the summer they are distributed over most of eastern North America, to as far west as the Alberta province and Texas; they then migrate south to winter in the neotropics from Mexico down to Southern Brazil. Many of the subspecies in the Caribbean are endemic and most do not migrate.
“A 28 m. (92 ft.) observation tower dedicated to the viewing of canopy birds and other wildlife. Placed in the center of the rainforest, The Nest offers unparalleled wildlife viewing opportunities. As you ascend the 146 stairs to the top, keep your eyes peeled for monkeys, toucans, and other wildlife moving through the lower levels of the trees. Once at the top, you will be treated to an incredible 360° panoramic view of Arenal Volcano, Arenal Lake, Cerro Chato, and the Tilarán Mountain Range. This is the perfect spot to scan the canopy for birds and other wildlife amongst the treetops. With a telescope, you may even find some aquatic birds in the areas surrounding the lake Arenal.”
