Glyn and I walked the dock road in San Lorenzo N.P. today at about 10:00 a..m. and I got lifer #948: Black-breasted Puffbird.
We saw a few new butterflies and I saw a Great Crested Flycatcher and a Wood-warbler I didn't see long enough to ID. Very dark, mottled thing.
I've marked the dirt (muddy) road in red. It comes off San Lorenzo Rd. We park the car in a flat area off San Lorenzo and walk to the river.
I've marked the map above with red for Tortuga Beach Road (dirt), Green=San Lorenzo Road (paved), Yellow, the Fishing Dock Road (dirt).
From Marina to Fort San Lorenzo. Yellow line is apprx. 9K.
This was another unidentified butterfly on my blog until November when Nick Morgan sent a comment (below) which solved the mystery. The butterfly is a Thisbe irenea. Many thanks, again, Nick. You can check out Nick's butterfly blog which he writes from Scotland here:
Wings closed in photo below.
Then, closer to the river, we saw the butterfly pictured below. It was similar but had blue-gray on it and less pronounced spots on the forewing. Male/female of the same butterfly as the one pictured above.
