Earthwatch Team ??: Day 5 El Garrapatero

Today our team of volunteers headed to El Garrapatero for the first time. It is still very dry as can be seen by the lack of green at our site. Hopefully, there will be some rain soon and we will catch even more birds!

At El Garrapatero, I found some tribulus plants. They produce seeds that are very pointy and relatively hard to crack, so only larger beaked birds can crack them. You can often find the remnants of the seed casings on the ground.
