Garrigues and Dean "The Birds of Costa Rica: A Field Guide" just came out in a second edition about a month ago. It is by far the best “field" book on CR birds. The older and more detailed "A Guide to the Birds of Costa Rica" by Stiles and Skutch is also excellent but not up to date (1989). And it is twice the weight of Garrigues and Dean. On the other hand, it (Stiles and Skutch) has more detail on habitat, ecology, and behavior than Garrigues and Dean.
