Finally a Peppershrike!
Great morning birding along the Panica River Trail today! The activity and abundance of bird life was truly awesome. We even got to see a Rufous-browed Peppershrike! This is a bird that has eluded me for 4 years worth of birding in Tambor Bay and I was happy to finally see it with such a great group of people.
The peppershrike was sighted along the main trail near the small stream behind H & B Lodge and Restaurant. This are tends to attract a lot of different species, especially during the dry season when it is one of the only sources of fresh water in the area. Also commonly seen in this area are tanagers, orioles, numerous migrant warblers and even painted buntings and blue grosbeaks. We finished off the morning with 86 species in total!
