A special break from Spanish class

Many of the classrooms on the UGA Costa Rica campus are named after animals found here: Toucan, Motmot, Chachalaca, and Perezoso (sloth).

During Spanish class this week in the Motmot classroom, students spotted a Motmot digging a burrow just outside the classroom. Instead of building nests or making their home in trees, Motmots burrow in the ground.

He flew away soon after, but not before we had a chance to watch a little bit of digging.
