Pacific Christmas Bird Count 2008

Last Sunday, December 14 saw a small number of brave birders spend hours and hours in the field looking for all the birds they could count in 24 hours. Yes, it's CBC time again.
Some highlights:
Plantation Road: Dull-mantled Antbird seen around the creek (Iván Hoyos).
Old Gamboa Road south: Short-tailed Nighthawk
seen flying above Summit Ponds at dawn. Rufous phase juvenile Tiny Hawk seen about 500 m from the Summit Golf Club entrance to Old Gamboa Road (50 meters before the first clearing) being mobbed by six or seven Purple-crowned Fairies. (Darién Montañez).

More highlights and preliminary totals to come.
