Morgan’s Rock Hacienda & Ecolodge Bird List
The bird population at Morgan’s Rock is typical of tropical dry forest lands, similar to that found in Guanacaste province in Costa Rica. There is also a maritime influence which is strengthened by a fine salt water estuary on the property. The bird population is also enhanced by Morgan’s Rock’s five-year status as a private nature reserve.
The birds listed in PDF file are ones which might well be encountered on the property. They are classified as Seen, Probable or Possible. Seen means the bird has been seen on the property by an experienced observer. Probable means that the bird’s traditional habitat is sufficiently similar to that at Morgan’s Rock that it ought to be seen here. Possible means that, again for habitat reasons, it would not be surprising if the bird were seen on the property.
Birdlists are works in progress. Please advise Morgan’s Rock staff of any sightings which are not in the Seen category, or any suggestions as to Probables and Possibles.
English and scientific names, as well as taxonomy, are based on Clements, Birds of the World: A Checklist, Fifth Edition as supplemented. Spanish names are from Stiles and Skutch, Birds of Costa Rica.
