Great tour of Old Gamboa Road yesterday with a total of 55 bird species recorded in the morning and some fantastic views of some less-common birds. The breeding Boat-billed Herons were very active at Summit Ponds from first light, with a pair and their chick perching and flying around the margins. Later in the day the rare Agami Heron was also spotted sunning itself over the pond. A pair of Spectacled Owls were then found perching low next to the trail – a rare sighting in daylight hours. Brief glimpses of the elusive Slate-colored Seedeater later in the morning completed a fantastic short hike on Old Gamboa Road.
