Second Correction on Island Girl

I had written this morning that Island Girl roosted near San Lorenzo in Ecuador two nights ago and that it appeared to be accessible only by boat.

I am fortunate enough to have a very good friend here in Guayaquil, Nancy Hilgert, the leading expert on peregrines in this country. She has just been kind enough to point out another of my errors. San Lorenzo is easily accessible by road and she also adds...

"and nearby is the  area with the tallest mangrove trees in the world".

As in Chile and Peru, it is always best to listen to the local experts, Nancy Hilgert in Ecuador in this case, Christian Gonzalez in Chile and Oscar Beingolea in Peru.

I am so fortunate to be in their company.

They help keep me out of trouble.
