Live from Costa Rica

Hola from Costa Rica! Found a Tacobar in Jaco on the central Pacific coast that has wifi so I figured I would send a little something about the birds while I had a minute. Being that I am on my honeymoon and not a birding trip I am limiting the birding--but even limited birding here is fantastic. Had 5 lifers before leaving the rental car place yesterday and over 40 on the day with just a couple quick stops. Highlights were Scarlet Macaws, Smooth-billed and Groove-billed Ani, Cherrie's Tanager, Amazon Kingfisher, lots of Rufous-napped Wrens, and Magnificent Frigatebird.

That's all for now. Added a few more lifers this morning, but will save that, picture, and more details for a future blog post!

Have you seen a Common Bush-Tanager or Rufous-collared Sparrow yet? They are fairly elusive...
