There hasn't been much excitement here. It's been raining here almost constantly for about a week so getting out beyond Rancho has been difficult. The birds here have been great, but again pretty regular save for some of the migrants still coming through. We had a Gray Catbird come to the feeders briefly the other day, on it's way further south or downslope. A Black-billed Cuckoo was a highlight about two weeks ago.
On Sunday, however, I head towards the Nicaraguan border to the slopes of Volcan Tenorio to look for another cuckoo. This one is a bit tougher.
I keep a Costa Rica list and it is currently at 539. My plans for this year were to get it to 600, but we will see how that holds out because it looks to be a busy season ahead!
Already plans are in place to venture to Trinidad, Tobago, Panama and Guatemala in the first half of next year. It's shaping up to be quite a year, and we're not even there yet!
