They are grouped primarily by size and type, progressing from seabirds like the Anhinga thru herons & larger waders, to hunters such as the osprey, falcons, kites, and hawks, to smaller waders and medium sized shore birds, then owls and parrots, and 12 species of hummingbirds! woodpecker & sap suckers, and all the smaller birds such as wrens, thrushes - and don't forget the ducks! Lots of ducks and the always interesting Rufuous-bellied Chuchalaca.
