Birding Day at Camuy

Well, have past much days that I do not post anything about my "birding" in Puerto Rico. And these last few days have been productive with seabirds like terns, sandpipers and plovers. On Wednesday July 27, I was with some friends at the town of Camuy. There are 3 main places we visited: 2 ponds and the river mouth. It was a very productive day as we see more than 40 epecies, two rare Included.

The day start rainy, but still we wait for a while and them we go down to watch. Commencing at the mouth of Rio Camuy, where we saw several species of terns including Least Tern, one of my favorite especie of terns. We saw Wilson Plover in the area . Then in the ponds we saw a Little Egret (Egretta garzeta) which is a rare sighting, although Earlier this year was seenone  too in the same area. Also between 358 Swallows Cave, that we count,  was a Cuban Martin (Progne cryptoleuca). We also found a White-cheeked Pintail with 14 ducklings.
