Here are lists of the birds and mammals I saw on the trip. If the order seems a little strange, it's because it is my own interpretation of current information about what the taxonomic order should be. Asterisks indicate life birds.

You may wonder why there are 203 birds on the list, when I only claim 200 birds for the trip. The answer is that there are three species that I have never seen that I didn't see this time. All three are marked in red. Two were heard, but not seen. The other case is the Lyre-tailed Nightjar. We saw eyeshine, and it seemed to respond to playback, but that isn't quite enough for me to count it. Although heard-only, the Rufous Antpitta does count because I have previously encountered it (Ecuador, 2008).
