We are planning a birding trip to Costa Rica sometime in the next 12 months. When is the best time to go in order to see neotropicals (the correct term?) I would never see in the states? @Connor Cochrane--I saw you just returned from there. Any tips? @Aveschapines--since I've not taken the trip, I wasn't sure where to post this, since the "Trips" thread refers to completed trips. It can be moved there if more suitable.
I've been adulting for the past couple of weeks and it cut hugely into my birding time. Hubby & I plan to do GBD Saturday, so that should help with my withdrawal symptoms. Is anybody else participating? We are going to get up early & start with the hotspots at the south end of our county (the Gulf portion) and work our way north parallelling Mobile Bay and into the delta. If time permits--which I doubt it will, this being our inaugural GBD--we will head over to adjoining Mobile county and bird north to south until we again reach the Gulf. Any tips or suggestions? Do you all set time limits for each birding spot during GBD?
I am planning on participating in my first GBBC & GBD this year. and found an entertaining, front-page article on the subject in the current newsletter of one of my local Audubon societies. There also is a link for a Costa Rica virtual birding tour that gives most of the registration fee to the local guide. I think that is a terrific idea to help keep ecotourism afloat during this pandemic. I have also placed "The Big Year" on our Netflix queue. 😄 We have never seen it. http://fmwaudubon.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/2021_Feb_Mar_Apr_skimmer.pdf
