With Diana Hews. Explored the Sendero Motiepa, a signed trail taking off into high quality rain forest from restaurant-parking lot of entrance to archeological zone. Met researchers Saul Miguel Sanchez and Elsa, who showed us bird photos Miguel had taken and pointed us toward a jacamar spot. Tall buttressed trees, figs and Bursera etc., shallow stream and springs with a few crossings, and mini-cascades. Wonderful habitat.
