  1. The local fruit dove, recently elevated to full species status.
    You can hear their rolling calls all the time, but they often stick to the canopy, where they are incredibly hard to spot. But I watched this one from the roof of the house of the one local birder (who's originally from Puerto Rico!), who lives in the forest, and has the birds come eat in the shrubs right around his garden :)
