Pipeline proper

We walked the first stretch of Pipeline Rd I think on a near daily basis the first few days of the trip.  It was different every time, I was impressed by how much diversity was there.

This Brown-hooded Parrot was the only one of the trip and was visible near the entrance

This Collared Aracari was the best look at one I had

We didn't have as much success on this walk in terms of finding a mixed flock, birds were mostly in ones and twos such as this pair of Dot-winged Antwrens

It was nice to see Long-billed Hermit in natural surroundings after seeing them at the feeders

Finally another motmot, this one a Rufous.  They have to be 14 inches long

This one was a lot more exposed than most of the Rufous that we saw; they tended to staying much more obscured by mid-story leaves than their smaller Broad-billed cousins.

Enjoying your posts, Matt! I'm heading to Panama on a cruise in mid-March and am looking forward to seeing only neo-tropic migrants. With my luck I might see 1 or 2 non-US birds...
