The adventures of Fe & Chris

Science must go on!

Fiona and I went out counting birds at Guanales early one morning. We were at a site at the end of a truncated transect (the transect had been shortened due to an illegal coffee plantation and the frequent presence of an armed gentleman). I had just begun a point count and was diligently listening for birdies when we heard voices coming from the path above us. They sounded like school kids so Fe set off at pace (would you believe she ran up the hill?) to ask them to please be quiet - science was in progress, after all. On her return she gingerly announced there was a man with a gun and another with a large machete just up the path and they were most definitely not school kids.

I’m not sure what she said to them, but it worked and they remained perfectly quiet for my census, before passing us and exchanging pleasantries.
