Costa Rica Blog for March 21-22, 2015
I last left off when we arrived in
Monteverde, and now we have just one more day left on the tour. Time has flown. It's
been amazing to have virtually no rain on the tour. On one afternoon
at Savegre we had a brief shower when we pulled out our umbrellas fo...

From the Field Costa Rica – More from Bosque del Rio Tigre
Here's another quick update from Costa
Rica. Today we arrived in the Arenal area, with tons of fun
sightings, but since the previous blog was part of my From the Field
post to the WINGS website, I tried to keep it short, leaving out some
highlights from Bos...

My First Rough-legged Tyrannulet in Costa Rica
Today was my first full day guiding my
19 th tour (20 th trip) in Costa Rica. We've
gotten off to a rather disjointed start. Since Volcán Turrialba blew
a big cloud of ash that drifted right over San José and its
international airport on Thursday mid-day, a...

Some Birds of Chaparrí Reserve
White-winged Guan is one of the reasons
that Chaparrí Reserve exists (the other being the Spectacled Bear).
Endemic to just NW Peru, it's one of the rarest birds in South
America, as pressures from habitat loss and hunting nearly wiped it
out. So a program ...

Some Chaparri Criters
Continuing the theme from my previous
posts, here
are some photos of the critters I saw in 2011 in the Chaparrí Reserve in northwestern Peru. Actually, first some photos of the

that divides...

Butterflies of Chaparrí Reserve
As long as I'm blogging about Chaparrí
Reserve in northern Peru ( where Fabrice Schmitt and I are scheduled to lead a WINGS tour ), here are some of the butterflies that I saw
there in early December 2011. This region has a very pronounced dry
season, suppo...

Black-capped Pygmy-Tyrant
Just one photo from Costa Rica today, though I have lots. Long days, lots of birds, and many other cool critters have made this a good tour. Today we birded La Selva Biological Station, seeing over 100 species of birds, most of them along less than 3 miles ...

Bathing Hummingbirds of Chaparrí
It's been a while since I have gone
over all of the photos from my December 2011 visit to Chaparrí
Reserve in northwestern Peru. There are a lot more than I thought, so

WINGS tour that Fabri...

tour for a couple reasons. First, it's being led by Fabrice Schmitt.
