Pearly-breasted Cuckoo, a new species confirmed for Panama; a report by Euclides Campos
I was joking with my client that I got almost two lifers and a half. The next half I will complete in a couple of days.
So I decided to visit Bayano Lake today (July 25) with Alexis Guevara. We stop again at Rio Mono Bridge. I played Pearly-breasted Cuckoo for almost 15 minutes, then Alexis told me there were two small cuckoos heading my way. One of these cuckoos came close and perched for a while in the area. We did not see any rufous on the primary or yellow eye ring as the pictures show. We spent a while there in the place when Alexis saw something moving and surprise! They were building a nest. One of the cuckoos was in the nest.
