Prothonotary Warblers head the migrant list....

Five protons banded today....yesterday our first Veery.
Closely followed by four more Northern Waterthrushes !
After two largely successful days balancing the targeting of both resident and migrant species, below our migrant totals to date :

Prothonotary Warbler        12
Northern Waterthrush       14
"Trail's Flycatcher"            11
Yellow Warbler                 10
Veery                                5
Red-eyed Vireo                  5
Canada Warbler                 4
Great Crested Flycatcher    3
Kentucky Warbler               1
Eastern Wood Pewee          1

Tomorrow our boat picks us up at 5am to take us the few kms back into the forest and we band at the Cano Palma base. Here the targets are resident species, and after this evening's downpours ...Antbirds and Antshrikes we hope!
Our final bird this morning...not a migrant....this female Slaty-tailed Trogon
