The plan for early morning was to go with Becca and re-locate the Capuchin monkeys but the weather had other ideas! Monsoon type conditions prevailed and quick forays out to the Lagoon edge were the only option between heavy showers. On a positive note the humidity had dropped and birds were more active.
A Striated Heron flew over the reed-bed near the beach as I was looking for the Pied-billed Grebe. The latter was re-located later on further round the Lagoon. Chopi Blackbirds were also present. I then hot footed it back as more storm clouds gathered and concentrated my efforts within running distance of the base! A group of Guira Cuckoo and Smooth-billed Ani were also seen.
Becca and I went looking for the Capuchins late on but were not successful. We made it back to base in the nick of time before the heavens opened again!
