Jeff (El Jefe
) Gordon, Julie (The Sketching Science Chimp) Zickefoose
, and I spent four fabulous days at Tikal
late last week. Here are a few of the photographic highlights, hastily posted from an ephemeral Internet connection near Coban
in the cloud forest of Guatemala.
White-fronted parrot. Yellow-throated euphonia in the Gran Plaza at Tikal. Olive-backed euphonia in the Gran Plaza. Collared aracari just outside our hotel at Tikal. Sketchefoose at Tikal. Red-capped manakin--perhaps my favorite life bird thus far on this trip. Jeff eschewed the still camera for video for this trip. Temple at Tikal rising from the jungle. A nice perch for a black vulture.
