Birding Costa Rica
With Buck Domitrovich

I didn't start birding seriously until I retired from the Plumbing Shop at Eastern Washington University in 2006. I got interested in wildlife photography when an old friend loaded me a camera and a 250 mm lens when I went to Alaska for the first time over 30 years ago. I've always enjoyed the outdoors as a youth hunting and fishing, backpacking with my family mostly in the Pintler Wilderness of Montana. Now when not travelling, I enjoy going out to Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge at least three times a week, and birding the northwest on a regular basis. I've birded and photographed in Washington, Idaho, Alaska, Arizona, Oregon, California and Costa Rica. I do not consider myself an expert birder, but consider myself as an advanced intermediate with a life list of about 650 birds.

The Costa Rica adventure was a gift to us for our 50th wedding anniversary to enjoy the wonders of nature in a completely new environment and added over 300 new birds to our life list. We also enjoyed the flora and fauna in a very diverse environment in such a small country.
