Costa Rica sightings update

There are daily surprises here at Guanacaste, Costa Rica.  Ticks seem to come regularly.  Today we found the endemic Dark Pewee, some way out of its normal range as well, so I was well pleased with that. We also found Stripe-headed Sparrow and Scrub Euphonia, a brand new bird family for us. We had good views of the normally shy Mangrove Cuckoo and eye level views of Cinnamon Hummingbird.  A pair of Pacific Screech Owls are giving lovely views roosting in a tree on the beach!
