Birding Site Guide

This site is about 7km from Chitre and accessed very easily by regular buses. The bus has Aguilito in big letters on the front and should leave from the terminal but also should pass through the town. It passes the airport where Yellow Pipit has been seen but I couldn't find it. When I went to Aguilito it was low tide and the sea was very distant. I still managed to see a good variety of waders and other water birds. There are also some mangroves north from the beach and also supposedly salt pans which I didn't manage to find. I actually walked to the beach and saw some good birds like Yellow-crowned Parrot, Spotted Bobwhite and Ferruginous Pygmy-Owl in the fields and scrub west of town. I saw 45 species including 3 lifers.
