June and July have the least amounts of rainfall received, then March to May has the most amounts received. Of course heavy rains tend to interfere with birding and the intrusion of new bird species in the park and as well as leading to delays stemming from the muddy impassable roads.
The hiking trails that traverse to the catchy birding areas can in turn be slippery, a lot of time and gentility has to be enforced which in turn can result to delays.

It can also be seen that migratory birds tend to show up from
late October to April.
