They mostly didn't come down low, the only one I found at eyelevel was still in deep unlit gloom
We worked pretty hard for a bit to find Gray-barred Wren, but would see it much better in the afternoon, as well as for one of the jays, but it didn't show at all in the morning. Warblers instead were the star of the morning.
Crescent-chested is a relative of our Parula
Next up is one of my favorite birds of the trip, Golden-browed Warbler
It seemed like an oddly localized bird, a relative of Rufous-capped Warbler. But unlike Rufous-capped, which ranges from Arizona to Colombia, Golden-browed is limited pretty much just to southern Mexico and northern Central America.
And one more warbler, we had a chance at seeing every member of the Black-throated green group on this trip. I'd only seen one Hermit Warbler previously, and didn't manage a photo, so I was happy to see this one.
Would we see the others? Stay tuned...
