The trout restaurant El Gavilán y Las Truchas here in San Antonio has been closed on each of my last three visits. It remains a very pretty spot and has some excellent forest and stream habitat in the paths above the restaurant.
Because of this habitat it offers some species that are otherwise not always easy to find around San Antonio: Slate-throated Redstart, Green Hermit, Common Chlorospingus, Silver-throated Tanager, Fasciated Tiger-heron, Yellowish Flycatcher and, occasionally, Spotted Barbtail.
Although my latest visit, in gloomy weather, was rather disappointing, it did turn up a Spotted Barbtail (Premnoplex brunnescens), perhaps only my third sighting in our immediate area. The photo above was taken by John on a subsequent occasion at a similar elevation at Rio Roca, Bonilla Arriba.
I’ll try to get on that as soon as I return, you track him down, I’ll try my best to get the photo.
