The adventures of Fe & Chris

Archive for August 13, 2007

From rain to sun

In Cusuco it ordinarily rains in the afternoons and a rainophobic bird person like me can easily avoid getting damp. Not so today.

I spent last night at Guanales and set off this morning for my last day of counting birds. At approximately 0732 I was on top of a ridge 700 metres above the camp, enjoying a Barred Forest Falcon, when it chucked it down. I got soaked, curtailed my counting activities and swung, monkey-like from tree to tree all the way down the hill.

Fe and I are off to the seaside tomorrow. We are going to a hotel on the Caribbean that Opwall run as a field site. There’s very little science to do - we just have to entertain some school kids. I’m looking forward to the pelicans, frigatebirds and sea whilst Fe is getting strangely excited about a rumoured washing machine.
