Hi Pablo, Greetings from Costa Rica. The count varies but around 856 is the number of different species in Costa Rica. Go to this link and yoc can see a list.
You may also Google "Birds of Costa Rica" and see a lot more.

Hard to answer because in Costa Rica we have a 30 percent of migratory birds species, we make every December an annual birds counting in all our national parks, last years we found over 820 different birds species and the record was 917 birds few years ago.

You'll be amazed at our guides' eagle eyes!!
