A busy two weeks! Sweet list. ~200 sp.!
As I looked over it I was surprised to not see Zonotrichia capensis (rufous-capped sparrow). I seem to recall them being all over the highlands, though maybe I was there at a different time of year. Makes me want to go back!

Some nice birds there, especially the wood-quail and Great Jacamar. Where did you see Great Jacamar?
