Also, Masked Duck was seen with ducklinks and Pinnated Bittern flew in front of our van in the W side of the island of Trinidad. In Waterloo we were able to report a rare vagrant to these islands, Herring Gul. One of the most special moments was the finding of Rufous Night jar (singing and scoped!) in Aripo, a lifer for our local guide, Mahase.
