Los Gemelos, or 'the twins' which are volcanic craters
The mora is so dominant an invasive species, we couldn't find the site the team normally samples at. Jaime and Joost literally bushwacked for quite a while before they gave up trying to access the original site, and we decided to sample at an accessible area near the original site.
Beside the lack of mosquitos because of the altitude (yah!), we caught two more species of finches native of the island - the woodpecker finch which can use tools to obtain food, and the warbler finch
We also caught a yellow warbler in our nets
The vegetation is also quite different from our other two sites
As always, we set up a base camp to measure the birds we caught.
