Rufous-vented Ground-Cuckoos still at PRDC, a report by Leslie Lieurance

Rufous-vented Ground-Cuckoos continue at Rainforest Discovery Center. Bill & Claudia Ahrens took us there today. With the help of Norteamericano birders we found the ant swarm, which seemed pretty quiet to me. The spot is found by walking from the parking lot, back up the entrance road and entering the trail system at the "Salida Exit" sign on the gate. Just past the observation platform at the Mirador we walked down the ravine to the flat portion at the bottom, where Cindy spotted the first bird. Also present were several Ocellated and Bicolored Antbirds.
Soon, one of the Center's guides led 4 Dutch birders down to the spot who also saw the birds. Later, at the Center, the Dutchmen told me they eventually saw 3 birds.
