If anyone sees any misIDs, please let me know on here so I can correct. 

The only misidentified bird that I found was the photo listed under Scissor-tailed Flycatcher, that bird is actually a Fork-tailed Flycatcher.

5 Quetzals!? That’s a bit greedy if you ask me! I’m jealous.

Awesome trip!

A lady who was not part of our group said she saw 22 in one tree. 😲 Our guide was not convinced.  😄 We saw our 5 over 2 days in 3 different locations, and some were mated pairs.

Thats amazing! I would get sooo many lifers. Congratulations!

It  was hard not to get Lifers--you would clean up.   Everywhere you looked:  birds, birds, birds.  And iguanas.  And caimans & crocs.  And bats.  And, other than the airfare, it's not terribly expensive.

Gee, when I first started birding I went to the best hotspots here. On of the first days I actually went out of the neighborhood to bird was to a big wetland. I saw 96 species, and 76 were lifers. Now that I’m almost two years in to birding(around a year and half seriously birding), my list is at 265, and it’s becoming way harder to get lifers. 

I wish that could still be the case. I must head to the tropics one day.
