Gone Birdin’, Drawin’, Travelin’

I don’t know why it’s so cozy and folksy to drop the ‘g’ but y’all know what I mean. I’ll be out in the Panama rainforest for the next couple of weeks, so please keep the blog warm while I’m gone. If it’s possible, I’ll post from there (it’s a pretty up-to-date field research station with running water and internet so I’ll see what can I can do). With any luck, you’ll be hearing about monkeys and researchers and violaceous trogons and all the steamy joys of the tropical tangle I so dearly love to wrap myself up in while I’m right there. Woohoo!

In the meantime, I’m leaving you with a few shots of where I’m going. Please feel free to browse the archives. I’ll be back soon!

Pale legs? That’s all I can say? It’s a White-whiskered Puffbird. With pale legs.

Cecropia tree, the ultimate light gap colonizer. For starters.
