We had an hour before a downpour sent us hither and yon.

Birds seen:

Great egret
Snowy egret
Little blue heron
Great blue heron
White-faced ibis
Northern jacana
Common moorhen

Barn owl

Cassin's kingbird
Vermilion flycatcher
Black phoebe

Brown-headed cowbird

The endemic Black-polled yellowthroat, however, evaded us.
