10 - 12 September 1999

by Michael Delesantro

Here is our trip list for the El Cielo region from 09/10 through 09/12, 1999.  This list includes all species detected by any member of our group of eight observers.  The majority of our time was spent in lowland tropical forest and oak forest.  We spent a little time at the bottom edge of the cloud forest zone. Brush-country birds and birds seen at roadside ponds en route to the region are also included.  The weather was generally partly cloudy to cloudy with some rain and enough periods of good sunshine to remind you that you were in the tropics!
