Umbrellabirds in El Copé, a report by Cedric Kinschots

I decided to follow up on your Umbrellabird sighting and visited El Copé this morning. At the exact spot mentioned in your report (the intersections of the Cuerpo de Paz and Auxiliary Trails with the Las Ranas trail, I played the tape and immediately not one, not two but three Umbrellabirds flew in.
Some pictures attached, they appear to be one adult and two younger males. Other good birds this morning were Crested Guan and Snowcap

I also saw several Smoky-brown Woodpeckers. I have been seeing these woodpeckers in El Copé for 12 years, even though Coclé is not mentioned in the range description of that species in Angehr nor Ridgley I believe.
