The clouds came in around 9 am already, but I kept it dry..what a great morning. Took the dogs, they love that hike. I did start with a nice Summer Tanager and then it did go on and on!!
Our other farm is situated in a different micro climate and so somewhat different birds to watch.
Like crested Oropendola and Cocoa Woodcreeper (although sometimes they visit our farm (Tinamou cottage) , but only in certain times of the year) and slaty Spinetail and black Phoebe, Meadowlark, Cherries Tanager, American Dipper (the Dipper was new in that area of la Estrella(finca Potoo) , never did see a Dipper there).
This lineated Woodpecker was pecking nearby our farm (Tinamou cottage) where we did start. I did not zoom in , they are absolutely not shy at all.
This Acorn Woodpecker was in a tree behind the lineated Woodpecker, I had to zoom him in... he was in the big Acacia tree where you see the red arrow.
This Meadowlark was singing beautiful, I love their song!
I took this Lark picture 15 minutes after that I took the pictures of the Woodpeckers...I was surrounded by clouds, it amazes me every time how fast that goes !
And then this Cherrie's Tanager on our other farm, his red looks great in those clouds!
On the Tinamou cottage farm we don't see Cherrie's Tanagers but Crimson backed Tanagers, but then 2 km further up, you see them everywhere.
And a nice present was today the two laughing Falcons doing their song...
I took a small video, put it on our Tinamou facebook and Youtube...
My dog Max was not coping well with the song that they did make, you will see on the video :)
Down below you will see the links and the list of today.
Greetings from Terry
