The first (I think the La Mesa trail) was fairly narrow and we didn't have a lot of success. Some of the group saw Dusky-faced Tanagers, we saw some fairly distant Red-somethinged Ant-tangers and a few Tawny-crested Tanagers, but I didn't have a ton of photo-ops. This Dusky-capped Flycatcher was probably the most cooperative.
We found both Plaintains
This was the view from the top, where we were entertained by distant Broad-winged and Short-tailed Hawks.
We slowly made our way back down the trail and in the last hour of light, and probably no more than a hundred yards from the van, Jose spotted a female Orange-bellied Trogon
A little mixed flock materialized, led by a Scaly-crested Pygmy-tyrant.
My first Spot-crowned Ant-vireo bludgeoned a caterpillar it captured into submission.
We found 3 sloths, 2 of which were presumably a mother and its nearly grown young doing some sort of mutual preening (being a moth haven is itchy work!)
Finally a shot of one of two Yellow-headed Caracaras which escorted a 3rd raptor (that I didn't get on) away from their territory
