carlos gomezBiologist Carlos Gómez Nieto, just "Charlie" to his friends, is one of Costa Rica’s all-time best birdwatchers with over 800 species of that country’s avifauna to his credit, including several first records. As a professional guide since 1985, Carlos has worked closely with many birding and natural history tour groups, and has earned a reputation as Costa Rica’s single most popular bird leader. He is an expert in tropical ecology, and has traveled widely in the United States, Mexico, Central America, and South America. In 1991 Carlos and Rick Taylor set a Costa Rican “Big Day” record of 225 species. Show tours with Carlos.
