Even when soggy, owls intrigue us. Spectacled Owl's reverberating voice (hence its genus name, Pulsatrix) is often heard at night in tropical forests, but birds on day roosts are difficult to find. Photograph by Costa Rica participant Jay Pruett.

Photograph by participant Jay Pruett.
A lovely view of Two Foot Bay, Barbuda, by our intrepid Lesser Antilles guide Jesse Fagan.
