Other highlights on posts below...and more flycatchers in Costa Rica soon !
September totals to the 13th, have Chiffchaffs leading the way with 175 new birds and Blackcaps with 104.
Of the acros... Sedge Warbler with 23 and Reed Warbler with 18, we did expect a few more.
10 Willow Warblers, only 5 Common Whitethroat and 1 Lesser Whitethroat, likely a reflection of the change in effort and location this early September.
Off we go !
Here Wendy is at our Aeroporto banding site at Tortuguero, surrounded not by flycatchers on this occasion but by Swainson's Thrushes - we banded over 400 in Sept /Oct 2013
COTERC..the Canadian Organisation for Tropical Education and Rainforest Conservation.
More from Costa Rica soon...we arrive in San Jose on Wednesday afternoon, and band at INBioparque on Thursday morning...
A Blue- crowned Motmot for Wendy maybe..
