A big thank-you to everyone who helped with the Tambor Bay Christmas Bird Count! Together we recorded an incredible 192 species! Thank-you for helping us spread the word of the amazing abundance and diversity to be found here in Tambor Bay. Special thanks to our visiting experts from La Selva, UNA – Heredia, CTP Cobano, and Tour Guides of Santa Teresa and Montezuma!

A number of new species were recorded for this area including grey headed piprites, grayish saltator, and eastern kingbird.

Of particular interest was a possible chestnut-backed antbird and an orange-collared manakin sighted by our expert group from La Selva biological station. The Tambor Bay Birders now have their work cut out to photographically confirm these species presence on the Peninsula.

Thanks to all who volunteered for the Christmas Bird Count and hope to see you for our Valentine’s Day bird count in February!
