Birding in the Canos
26 March 2014 | Los Haitises National Park, DR
Hunter and I left the boat at sunrise to do some birding and exploring up the mangrove creeks, arriving at the lodge just in time for breakfast. The breakfast was good and the coffee was excellent. Hunter does know how to put a smile on my face. I really enjoy going out for breakfast now and again. My bird book and binoculars attracted the attention of a lodge guide named Misael. He wanted to show us a pair of nesting Ridgeway hawks. We did see these very endangered hawks that nest high in palm trees, and walked around the property with Misael pointing out birds. Misael invited us to look for Ashy Faced Owls in the evening and really seemed disappointed when we tried to decline, so we returned to the boat for dinner and back to the lodge at sunset with Kim and Scott for our owl date. We heard the owls, but never saw one, but we all had a nice night walk.
