1992 edition of Birds of Panama - still relevant?

The Ridgely Birds of Panama looks appealing as it also covers Nicaragua which is on my short list.

Birding on a cultural trip

I hummed and hawed about where to post, but I won't provide a bird by bird trip report, so decided to post here.

Great finale! I didn't get up to Murchison, but it sounds like a great segment for you (despite the traffic dramas). I think that it should be noted, the driver should not also be a photographer...

Bird number 1, right? I am going to question Tobago. It really looks like that is snow, and there seems to be a glimmer of ice as if the image was shot through a frozen window. If it isn't snow,...

Bill says warbler, and it is a young one, so harder to tell. I think I see some yellow in picture two. Other colours, faint markings leads me to guess yellow-rumped warbler.

Hi Jeanie.
I've been off the forum for a few weeks, so a late post. Gaspe can be quite birdy, but lends itself to a car. I also checked Birding Pal for possible options in Perce (close to Gaspe), but...
