We just returned from Madre Selva, our much colder site with no internet where we get to do more cooking. We saw and banded a lot of new birds, most commonly Mountain Gems, Mountain Elaenia, Ruddy-capped Nightingale Thrush, Yellow-thighed Finch, Chestnut-capped Brush Finch, Wilson’s Warbler (!!), Black-cheeked Warbler, Collared Redstart, Common Bush Tanager, and Rufous-collared Sparrows. Yes!!!
We cooked what we could, stuff like curries, lentil salads, rice and beans, even made a pizza in the wood stove. Our coworker in Tort has some lemongrass and citrus leaves for us to take to MS next time!
We took the three buses and boat to Tortuguero today and have just arrived. Neat to have internet again, missed you my friends.
