Hello everyone, let me start by wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, may 2019 be year filled with blessing, lots of nature around you and specially tons of birds to be seen!
We wish to thank all of the dear people that travelled with us during 2018, we hope you all had as much fun and enjoyment as we did showing you birds and nature.
We at Birding Experiences had a great year, Jehudy and I had multiple travels all across Costa Rica, covering practically every possible ecosystem and birding hotspot present in this little country of only 51.100 square kilometers. That’s approximately twice the size of state of Vermont in the USA.
We also had the chance to travel abroad, which had us birding in the USA, Colombia and Ecuador.
We worked organizing yet another successful edition of the Arenal Bird Count, with a preliminar tally of 356 species recorded in 1 day, by 81 observers that attended on December 8th 2018.
Our year total tally is yet to be announced since we both are still trying to get a few last birds, Jehudy guiding and traveling in Costa Rica and myself traveling to Peru.

For 2019 we have decided to set out in a new adventure, that we hope to share with as many people as possible through this blog and of course on the field, where ever our paths may take us during the year.
Our first «Official Big Year» will take in count all of our bird observations during 2019. Both Jehudy and I will be sharing all of our eBird records with a Birding Experiences eBird user, in that way, even if we are not together we will keep a combined Year List.
We invite you to follow our social media for updates of our adventures, and we hope that many of you will be a part of them.
Good Birding to all!!!
Diego & Jehudy
