10,000 Birds

It would be uber cool to lay eyes on a rare lifer, on species that only seem to live on the pages of a field guide but isn’t that somewhat discriminatory?

The experience was one a long time in the waiting ever since I skipped over the highlands of Chiapas with a flight from the Yucatan to Costa Rica so many years ago.
