Searching for Hard to Find Birds

Photos

On April 1st, Sarah and I decided to go up to the Respringo entrance of the Quetzal trail to look for 4 species of birds that like to feast on the seeds of a particular bamboo. This bamboo seeds infrequently, I hear every 7 years, so when it happens, it is time to go up and look for the peg-billed finch, maroon chested ground dove, barred parakeet, and any other birds hanging around.

I took the digiscope, though early in the morning and in the rain forest it is difficult to get good low noise photos. Got a few, and hope they are good enough for the bird lovers.

This is the list of the days sightings, though I only photographed the peg-billed finch, the barred parakeet, and the slaty flowerpiercer:

Black-cheeked warbler 
flame-throated warbler
golden-browed chlorophonia
peg-billed finch
large-footed finch
barred parakeet
rufous collared sparrow
flame throated hummingbird
volcano humming bird
Slaty flowerpiercer
black capped flycatcher
black-billed nightengale-thrush
common bush-tanager
long-tailed silky-flycatcher
slate-throated redstart
collared redstart
white-naped brush-finch
yellow-faced grassquit

yellow-headed caracara

cattle egret
meadowlark

Cactus Goes Crazy

Photos

A couple of nights ago, Sarah’s weird cactus plant went crazy with blooms. The blooms come out at night and last only one night. Not sure which cactus this is, so if anyone has a clue, let me know.

The flowers are not quite fully open. They are full around midnight ….. Sarah stayed up to see them. Me … off to sleep in my chair:)

Respringo Ranger Station, Volcan, Chiriqui, R de Panama – 19 Feb, 2015

Sarah and our guests, Karen and Doug Dance, with a couple of other folks decided to walk the Quetzal Trail around the north side of Volcan Baru. I provided transport to the trail head and a ride back from the Volcan end of the trail.

While hanging around the ranger station on the Volcan end, I happened to get a few photos. The black guan is a bit fuzzy. I found it really hard to get a focus on that bird. So enjoy the photos and forgive the “softness”.
