Question 48 hrs in Puerto Rico in a couple of weeks

Anyone birded /traveled around Puerto Rico recently?

https://ebird.org/barchart?byr=2018&...=1&emo=12&r=PR

I'll likely just try for the endemics /some regional specialties -

Just not sure how well the island has recovered from the hurricane; also I prepped for a trip here a while back but never went and lost the notes etc so not sure where to go- looks like a fairly easy prep though in terms of calls and maps.

Struggling to find info on where to see Puerto Rican Parrot... the nightjar looks difficult as well but I have locations for that.

Thanks Neils - I'll only be on the west side of the island so looks like I'll miss it - I'll now only have ~20 hrs birding anyway - but with luck I should have a decent shot all the other endemics (except perhaps the nightjar).
