Russet-crowned Quail-Dove, &c.

John Rowlett and Mitch Lysinger, with a group of 10 Field Guides participants, saw and tape-recorded a singing Russet-crowned Quail-Dove (Geotrygon goldmani) on Cerro Jefe, 3100 feet, on March 22, 2003, precisely the same date 92 years later that E. A. Goldman reached the summit of Cerro Jefe/Azul. Quite fittingly, the group also saw a beautiful male Violet-capped Hummingbird (Goldmania violiceps) on Jefe the same day. Goldman’s effort was roundly celebrated.
On the 17th of March the same group of birders found, tape-recorded, and obtained lovely digital photos of an Ochraceous Pewee above Guadalupe in the mountains of Chiriquí.
