    Costa Rica March 2020

    Thanks guys and to Andy for the bat identification! I went in 2005 and did more of a clean up but Costa Rica has improved with age and a fantastic and great place to bird.

    Birding around Guanacaste- request for info

    Hi, I have a few days to bird in the Playa Hermosa area in Guanacaste. I have some areas to check such as some farm fields and the Catfish farm areas noted in eBird. I have some general areas to bird, but due to time any specifics on access and how to bird those areas would be helpful. Also...

    Some Notes on the Identity of (Autumn) Marsh Warbler

    Graham, I don't see any obvious greenish tones here...looks quite brown and buff in the images but on some of the images I can make out perhaps an olive tone... and I know judging tones of acros in life and in pix are tough. It's got a wacking primary projection and yellowish feet but I...

    Some Notes on the Identity of (Autumn) Marsh Warbler

    I had forgotten I had talked about this in a forum. Nice write-up Mr. Small. Do you have reference to that BB bird in light of Graham's thread above.

    Some Notes on the Identity of (Autumn) Marsh Warbler

    �� Kenidjack, Kelynack, Kester, lots of "K"s, "E"s and too many "Y"s in those names for my old brain!!

    Cinnamon Hummingbirds and Yucatan Flycatchers in Quintana Roo

    Does anyone have any suggestions where to look for this species in areas around Felipe Carillo Puerto, Tulum, Coba or Muyil. I searched last time but never came across any and wonder if they are likely more local than I expected. I plan to target these this year :) Thanks, Julian

    Some Notes on the Identity of (Autumn) Marsh Warbler

    Good to read an objective/subjective approach to a conundrum I haven't experienced in a while. I've seen bird(s) near Porthellick that I was happy was a Marsh Warbler back in the day. One bird I saw in Cornwall, on an October trip to Blighty, was a bird that was hanging out at Kenidjack...

    Yucatan Birding Sites...new suggestions?

    Thanks all...I heard that Xochen near Valladolid is also a good site with a breakdown of species similar to FCP. I'm targeting nightbirds this time, Poorwill, Nightjar and Mottled Owl but it will require some early mornings since staying overnight at those spots isn't logistical given my...

    Yucatan Birding Sites...new suggestions?

    Niels I can probably expand my radius ���� it was meant to limit what info I got but I may do a bit more exploring. The town of Francisco oh Ma (?) en route to Coba was said to be good by another birder. I didn't have time but it looks promising. I still need Mottled Owl and the nightjars so...

    Yucatan Birding Sites...new suggestions?

    Hi All, I will be returning to Tulum in late November again this year. My report from 2017 is on a previous thread. I plan to bird Coba, Muyil, FCP again and was hoping to explore a few other spots. Would anyone have any suggestions for areas about an hour from Tulum that may be worth...
