Author's notes

We could hear the calls of a Dollarbird . We were fortunate in that it flew almost right over the top of us. A second one also flew nearby. Unfortunately, they both managed to land on the far side of the trees we were behind. I was able to shoot some photos between tree branches but they were not great pictures.
