So for the better part of the last week I have lived in Microsoft Excel during the wee hours of the night. Bouncing between eBird, Garrigues's The Birds of Costa Rica, and Excel I made my initial list, of species. I then went through and based of the field guide assigned each species an abundance:
After that most of my time was in eBird and seeing which birds we could find at the places we were planning on visiting. I'm not nearly done as I am trying to come up with 2-3 locations for each species, but I have a rough start. As I have started going through, I added about 16 species, but removed 13 others so it is all breaking even.
When all is said an done, I will post a copy on the blog to go along with this series of posts.
