August 31, 2013 - Estero Llano Grande SP

 

One of thousands of White-winged Doves gathering the day before Dove Season!

 

   

The Question Mark gets its name from the white squiggle on the ventral side of the hindwing (visible in the left-hand photo)

 

Several Groove-billed Anis call along the back road of the Tropical Zone

 

Here a Great Kiskadee sings "Hip hip hooray!" while a Curve-billed Thrasher gives its rude double whistle in the background (you can also hear one of the anis).

 

Park host Huck Hutchins leads Sheri and Ana on a bird walk!

 

Huck works his magic and finds us a snoozing Pauraque right away!

 

For me, the best sighting was this Ruddy Daggerwing that flew in!  (It was actually hanging upside-down but I flipped the photo...)

 

   

Many Yellow Warblers were migrating through along the Camino de Aves Trail.

 

Just a small portion of the thousands of Whitewings filling the skies!

 

The boardwalk over Dowitcher Pond (there was water to the right...)
