For those who are interested, here’s my most recent blog post. This should provide some reading material for the hottest part of the day tomorrow. The idea is to do a series of 3 blog posts on my trip to Costa Rica (with Kim Smith and Kannan) at the end of May. I decided to start with a post especially dear to my heart, it’s entitled "Costa Rica: Creatures of the Night" and is about owls seen and photographed on the trip. I also give a shoutout to some of the country’s famous herps. Check it out:
This trip was amazing, with over 300 species tallied. I was able to get around 130 life birds, including 7 owls, all of which were photographed. Not surprisingly, my favorite bird of the whole trip was the Unspotted Saw-whet Owl, seen with David Oakley and Mia Revels. We hired a special guide for this night excursion in the high-elevation Savegre Region.
