Birding around the lodge is often productive: Santa Marta Brush-Finches are common in the garden, which includes a Crested Oropendula colony. Hummingbirds include the uncommon endemics Blossomcrown and Santa Marta Woodstar. Tanagers visit the feeding trays: look for Black-capped Tanager and Blue-naped Chlorophonias. The lodge clearing, with a view of the Caribbean below, is a good place to look for flying Scarlet-fronted Parakeets and White-rumped Hawks. There is also a newly discovered endemic Screech Owl species that often can be found close to the lodge. Black-fronted Wood-Quail, Santa Marta Toucanet, White-tipped Quetzal, Strong-billed Woodcreeper, Streak-capped Spinetail, Gray-throated Leaftosser, Santa Marta Antpitta, Golden-breasted Fruiteaters, Black-hooded Thrush and White-lored Warblers can all be found in the forests adjacent to the lodge.
