Unbelievably lucky encounter--I was squealing trying to attract a gray fox into the open and it flew in and landed 15 feet away at eye level.

Lots of euphonias in the fruiting trees in the main pyramid complex, most not seen well enough to ID.

Pair at an ant swarm on the track to the dry laguna (this track leaves from one of the campamentos were the park employees live, just across from where a large Mercedes truck is parked)
