We checked out the viewing tower where Jacob posed for more of the series, Jacob vs. the volcano.
Here we got views of a Golden-bellied Flycatcher.
Spotted Barbtail... I think?
Things I looked at instead of birds:
One section of trail had all these signs that made Caroline furious:
Towards the end of the trail we heard the sound of a Silvery-fronted Tapaculo, a difficult bird to see.
We were all standing on the edge of this patch of low vegetation when the dang bird walked right across a little clearing in front of me. I failed to see a lot of visible birds that morning yet I saw this silly thing. It made me feel a little better. Complete checklist from our morning here.
Back at the Airbnb we explored some of the trails around which are all part of Green Paradise Ecological Preserve.
At dusk we went looking for the Mottled Owls that were calling. We did see one fly but never found where it perched. There were lots of fireflies and these weird insects on the ground with light-up spots on their head:
The video shows it better:
iNaturalist suggests the genus Pyrophorus, or Peeny Wallys. Peeny Wallys??
I will leave you to ponder that name now. Two more days to go! Checklist from the afternoon/evening here.
