Overview of Costa Rica

All in all, what a great trip full of phenominal birding, amazing scenery, and great wildlife!

We easily tallied over 200 bird species, all without touching either coast (and despite several rain days)!

We were able to photograph over 120 bird species!  For most of the bird photos, I used a Nikon D50 with a Nikon VR 70-300 mm lens (which I might add BROKE halfway through the trip!).  For most of the landscape shots, we used a Nikon Coolpix P2.

Many thanks to Kevin Easley, Melvin, and Kip Miller for all the tips!
