Identifying your species has a lot to do with what it looks like and what it's doing. It also has a lot to do with where you found it. One way to help identify an organism is to look at the range maps in field guides. You can also see if anyone has created a guide, or checklist of local plants or animals in iNaturalist. For example, if you're looking for a guide to the birds of Tortuguero, from the top line menu, click "Guides" and type in "Tortuguero" and hit "Search". The first entry is "Tortuguero, Costa Rica BIRDS". Open that guide and you'll see a list of all the birds that have been observed by researchers in the area. This helps narrow the possibilities for your species identification. AB.
