The trip will be my first to Central America. Although some of the species in CR are the same as in Colombia where I have spent 2 weeks and there will be wintering North American passerines I've seen there should also be more than enough for me to get my teeth into.
We'll be away for about 3 and a half weeks in all and our itinerary includes visits to Savegre Mountain Lodge, Poas Volcano, La Selva Biological Station, Selva Verde Lodge, Arenal Observatory Lodge, Monteverde/Santa Elena, Nicoya Peninsular and Carara NP so it should be a varied trip.
As ever it won't be all birding and I don't have a hit list. I'll see what I see and miss what I miss which is a nice relaxed way bird a new place. The following pics are of birds I'd not sneeze at though!
Long-tailed Silky Flycatcher
