Birding Rio San Juan Nicaragua, Montecristo River Lodge. We at the Eco Lodge started observing the amazing
world of birding, a few year ago, thanks to Mrs. Willow Zuchowski a wonderful lady, author of the book Tropical
Plants of Costa Rica. That on her visit to our lodge, she gave us as gift the book The Birds of Costa Rica by
Richard Garrigues and Robert Dean.

I’m Alfonso Agustin Llanes the owner of the Lodge, and by now I have gained the basic skill to identify the birds
around our Lodge. I started my birds list, listing only the birds I identify for sure. I still have dough when
identifying the small seed eaters, warblers, flycatchers and the like.

My first list was identified between August and October of 2008. Birds name in red were identified between
October and November 2008. Birds in blue identified by Sylvia and Bela Babus on their vacation December 2008,
birds in Brown added up to April of 2009, birds in bold blue up to October 2009, birds in bold brown up to January
2010,  birds in bold black up to March 2010, and light blue till may 2011.

I will take this opportunity to thanks Mr. Rob Batchelder for correcting quite a few mistakes I had on my
page as today December 29, 2010.

We ask our birds friends to help us identify and correct us if we have made mistake in naming the birds in my
pictures.
