Chestnut...from forest floor to canopy.

Prior to banding in the National Parque de Tortuguero a visit is made to the Parque office to confirm with the rangers. As part of this hike we did manage to get great views of three Great Currasows ! Banding was slow yesterday, but we did band this fine adult male Chestnut-backed Antbird.
Our first Chestnut-sided Warbler too..
Today we were banding at our base, The Sea Turtle Conservancy, where we had a great day with migrants...more Chestnut-sided Warblers, our first Wood Thrush, and amongst the six Summer Tanagers this first year male Scarlet Tanager
Last night we took up an offer of a 4 hour night patrol with two of the turtle researchers......
....what an experience !  More in a dedicated posting soon.
