Large-billed Tern in Pacora

On the early afternoon of June 16, the Panama Audubon team surveying shorebirds in Pacora—including Yenifer Díaz and Rosabel Miró—spotted this Large-billed Tern out on the mudflats. Needless to say, this is the first record of this rare vagrant from South America in forever. Also present were about 50 Common Terns , and a pair of American Oystercatchers with a chick in tow.

Long-billed Dowitchers in Aguadulce

Rosabel Miró found not one or two, but three Long-billed Dowitchers at the very dry Aguadulce Salinas on May 20: one molting into breeding plumage and two still in winter plumage.
