Our final week...
Quality residents too -
Tanagers - c40 species are found in Costa Rica. This stunning adult male Summer Tanager in the adjacent net !
I'm writing this in San Jose, a flight to Madrid tomorrow.
Nearly three months in Costa Rica,......1939 birds captured of 120 species.
Migrants - large numbers of Catharus thrushes...to individuals of rarer warbler species.
Residents - smaller numbers and lots to be learned...
All ringing took place at standard sites, almost always with a two person team.
My thanks to all involved, in particular - Wendy with me for the first two months, and Ivan de la Hera these final six weeks.
