Day 3

Research Log
Up at 05:30 this morning to start observations at 06:00. Followed mostly Spider Monkeys (Ateles geoffroyi) today, with a few Mantled Howler Monkeys (Alouatta palliata; above). Out in the field until 16:00. It was sunny today, so there was a lull around midday. Data entry after work, followed by a quick swim, even though it started to rain torrentially.

Animal of the Day
Slaty Tailed Trogon - Trogon massena
Saw this bird from the kitchen today. Gorgeous.
