I've been away for a while, more on that later, but for now the last (?) Panama post.
Our last evening of birding was on a side road off of or on the way from Achiote Rd. I was hoping for one last bird (I think this was the first day that I've birded the whole day in the neotropics and not gotten a lifer), but even without new birds there was always opportunities to learn the ones we'd seen better.
We saw a few last Howler Monkeys, this group had a baby.
A few White-chinned Capuchins made their appearance too. They're smaller than the Howlers, but tend to be more active, shaking the vegetation (clearing out potentially dangerous dead limbs maybe?) and generally raising a commotion.
They had another observer, a young Double-toothed Kite
Another Black-breasted Puffbird appeared.
Finally a montage of an Aracari.
Frequently they move in groups, the first 2 got by me without pics, but the final bird made a decent montage.
