December 28, DRIVE PAST CHARCO AZUL TO LOS ARENALES AT RIO COJEDES. After we finished lunch, David Ascanio showed up with Bill Fraser and his favorite driver Jose. We took a siesta until 3:30 p.m. when Bill and his giant camera and David joined us for the afternoon/evening outing. We managed to add another 30 species to our list before returning to the ranch at 10 p.m. Part of our delay was finding an ocelot that was eating a nine-banded armadillo and thus gave us incredible looks. We had tremendous dueting from two White-bearded Flycatchers and four Black-capped Donacobius. The rarest bird was David's Short-tailed Swift since Jeri had only seen it here on two previous tours. We stopped a lot for Bill to catch up on many species he missed this morning when he drove from Caracas to Hato Piñero with David and his bus driver Jose. In addition to these specialties our spotlighting added Pauraque (50 plus), in had examinations of White-tailed Nightjar caught by David, Lesser Nighthawk and both Common and Great potoos.
