Nest and Monkeys
For today I have a special nest story: it’s one of the Clay-colored Thrushes or Robins (Turdus grayi – Gilbdrossel) and how they are defending their nest.
That’s how the Thrushes look:
Their nest was a little protected from Panama City’s heat by some leaves.
But the Thrush sitting on the nest had the beak open to cool itself down a little.
Once or twice a day their life got busy. The Geoffroy’s Tamarins (Saguinus geoffroyi – Geoffroy-Perückenaffen) or mono tití, as they are called by the locals, came for the bananas and the Thrushes were defending their nest. The monkeys never got very close to the nest, but maybe they will as soon as the little Thrushes have hatched.
