In the San Blas area we will bird renowned places like Cerro San Juan, Singayta, La Bajada and Chacalilla. We will target Red-headed Tanager, Fan-tailed and Crescent-chested Warbler, Russet-crowned Motmot, Rosy Thrush-Tanager, Red-breasted Chat, Rufous-necked Wood-Rail and a slough of other birds. A boat ride out to Elephant Rock should yield nice looks at Brown and Blue-footed Booby and there is a good chance for Red-billed Tropicbird. The feature birds on an evening cruise along the river are Boat-billed Heron, Northern Potoo and Bare-throated Tiger-Heron. We should see a few species of owls as well, with Mottled having been at the hotel the last few years. Ferruginous and Colima Pygmy-Owl are very likely to be seen.
