Besides the cloud forest, Finca Filadelfia also has a pine-oak forest, a type of forest that faces endangerment. Logging and clearing the forest to make room for cattle-grazing have made pine-oak forests one of the more rare forests in Central America. 175 different species of bird have been sighted in the area.
Birders consider the bar-winged oriole one of the most interesting species in the area. Their melodic song is more distinctive than their appearance. They strongly resemble their North American cousin, the Baltimore oriole.
