On the PAS fieldtrip to Cerro Jefe, Bill Adsett's half of the group found a Stripe-headed (Black-headed) Brush-Finch to the west of Cerro Vistamares. The species, one of the Cerro Jefe specialties, had not been recorded in the area for many years.

On May 1st, 2002, I was birding at the Metropolitan Nature Park. I started my day at the Mono Tití trail and then continued at La Cienaguita trail. At 9:34:07 A.M., at the eleventh station, I saw a bird hanging almost upside down on a branch of a monkey ear tree (Enterolobium cyclocarpum). It was a Crane Hawk. It was slate colored, more grayish than blackish, with thin, long red-orange legs and two white bands on its tail. I stood there watching it for a while, and then another bird flew in and perched on another branch of the same tree, a second Crane Hawk. It was enough for me to see one, but I never thought that I would see two in the same place.
