Tortuga Lodge.....more migrants than residents.
Deeper into the forest....and disproving my final comment on the last post, three species of Catharus thrush, a Yellow-bellied Flycatcher and a Canada Warbler !
Joining our multi-national banding today, Blanca from Spain, and Juan, one of the Lodge wildlife guides.
Juan, releasing a Grey-cheeked Thrush, with Blanca learning the CRBO banding data requirements.
The resident bird highlight of the day was two Wedge-billed Woodcreepers.
Very difficult to age, sex etc, but a delight in the hand, this perhaps the smallest of the Woodcreepers with this unique bill and weighing only 13.7g.
