San Pedro Day List:

Cruce Caballero PP – upland rarities unique to the Atlantic Forest biome: Solitary Tinamou, Rusty-barred Owl, White-browed Foliage-Gleaner, Sao-Paulo Tyrannulet, Planalto Tapaculo, Black-billed Scythebill and Green-chinned Euphonia are all good possibilities, and we may be among those lucky enough to see Robust and Helmeted Woodpeckers.

Araucarias PP –  Canebrake Groundcreeper and Araucaria Tit-spinetail. Other regulars are Red-breasted Toucan, Vinaceous-breasted Amazon, Azure Jay and even the odd Helmeted Woodpecker.
