Drive to Boca Chica via Bajo Frio and Chorca Abajo

9 July 2012 – Drive to Boca Chica by way of Bajo Frio and Chorcha Abajo

Heading down from Cerro Punta we stopped at Bajo Frio in search of the White-crested Coquette. Not much was in bloom and we missed the Coquette but we were thrilled to find Olivaceous Piculet and Streak-headed Woodcreeper. Later in the morning, combing through the forest patches in Chorcha Abajo we turned up Black-hooded Antshrike, a female Orange-collared Manakin, a beautiful male Lance-tailed Manakin and our first Pearl Kite.
