With the heat of the late afternoon scorching we spent a bit of time on a river island in the wide Sani River. There was a lot of sand and little shade. It felt like a desert.
But we had a few target birds, and one of them is in this pic
With some maneuvering I got a clearer view of a Ladder-tailed Nightjar roosting on the fallen log. Sadly the tail wasn't visible.
An Oriole Blackbird teed up. We were wilted enough that I had trouble getting people on this bird.
Our guide got pretty excited about a Willow Flycatcher fitz-bew-ing; I think most of us were as excited to see the boat, as a Pale-vented Pigeon bid us good night.
