The wind did change and we get some clouds above the farm in the afternoon...no rain yet, but it feels good.
Also for the clay colored Thrushes and white throated Thrushes, they did start with singing around a week ago.
In Panama there is no spring...but it feels a little bit like spring.
Here they call it almost winter... mmm hard to feel winter for a Dutch girl like me...even after almost 19 years living here.
So I have my spring here in Panama, what people say here either way. Also I keep an eye on the Spring in Holland, by checking out the Dutch birds...
This morning Hans and I were drinking coffee on the balcony and there they were..two violaceous (Gartered) Trogons Male and female, totally in love. I took a picture ..finally... of course it is a typical "me" picture...the male has his head behind branches ....( also a small movie of them.. https://www.facebook.com/tinamoucottage/?fref=ts )
