Rain, wind and dense fog (clouds) did not prevent us from finding a large mixed warbler flock with two goldencheeks yesterday, making 30 individuals for the season. This morning, the weather was a little worse than yesterday, and after a couple of hours, we simply gave up. The photo above shows an area where we heard birds, but couldn't see more than a fleeting silhouette here and there. Our field work there was impossible.

Meanwhile, Roselvy and Lya, both SalvaNatura staff, have arrived to set up a permanent bird monitoring station in Monte Uyuca. We're assisting them with this. Hopefully they will start banding tomorrow, and who knows, maybe they will catch a goldencheek...
