It’s still dark here this morning, and there’s a Blue-crowned Motmot woot-wooting in the shadows 6 feet from my open window. There’s a Great Potoo out there sqwaunking, too, and a few Brown-jays are starting up. I can hear footsteps on our decks as birders awaken, as well, to start a new day here at Pico Bonito Lodge, Honduras.
There are quite a few birders with us this week, and many are friends, including a group from England and another with Zeiss and Eagle Optics from the U.S.A. Even though it’s only 6 a.m., I know from the dawn chorus out there that this is going to be a great day in the rain forest.
