This will be my last entry to Costa Rican birds. Thanks to everyone who visited this blog and my work here. I managed to shot and identify 196 species during the 16 days I was birding there. And there are some shots too I could not identify. So probably I shot 200 birds. At least. The groups (14 people)  total, seen and/or heard, was 500 species.

I love comments so please write something. I usually responds to everyone on their own blogs. But nowadays I often find it impossible to comment on many blogs or on Google+. Often the word verifications is unreadable. And after three times I give up. Other times the systems seems to think I am a spammer. Lots of bloggers loose comments that way. :( So, if you don´t see me comment on your blog that is the reason.
