Teaching starts with a Tinamou
Another amazing start to a banding session here in Costa Rica.!!!
The morning at Cano Palma continued with a good mix of residents and migrants. This is one species often heard in the forest..Chestnut-backed Antbird. This an adult male.
With several keen volunteers at Cano Palma the morning was a good teaching opportunity. Learning points for all of us when it comes down to the finer points of Empidonax Flycatcher identification.
The bird here was an Acadian Flycatcher
At our base at the Sea Turtle Conservancy today a morning of teaching again in a temperature of 32.5 by the end of the session.
Of course the days aren't just about birds. Just a few of the many other creatures seen in the last couple of days...
Bats at Cano Palma - these usually live in the boat dock but have moved to a nearby tree after having young
A change in the weather tonight with a big thunderstorm. Hopefully it will be dry by the morning for a visit to our site near the airport. This Bare-throated Tiger Heron is often by the boat deck when we leave by boat to travel to our sites.
