Back from CR (a bit early)


I'm back from Costa Rica a bit early. Here's me standing in front of the Arenal volcano. We could see the top when we first got there, but for the most part, it was clouded over. The locals hadn't seen the top for 11 days until the day we arrived.

The trip was awesome and Tico Tours did another excellent job planning it. Their local contacts really help make you feel like you're in good hands. Not counting "heard only" species, I saw 265 species including 85 lifers. I'll write more later with pictures. Unfortunately, my camera broke on day 4. Yuck.

Welcome back! That's a lot of lifers. Hope your early return wasn't the result of unfortunate circumstances.

Hope everything's okay.

Look forward to hearing about the trip and all those lifers.

Everything OK?

Everything is cool with me. I was just a bit burned out from a week of birding. I was sick for several days and I think it took a toll on me physically. I'll post some more pics later tonight.
