Operation PhotoTrogon – Finito

By Jim Gain

The next morning as we pulled ourselves out of bed and slowly started to shake off the cobwebs, we both realized that at this point our trip had been a complete success. Undoubtedly, probably the best birding trip we had ever been on. Rich suggested that perhaps we consider checking out and maybe drive partway back today, two days early. I followed that with, “well, why not just check out and head home!” So it was agreed that operation PhotoTrogon was a complete success and we were on our way home.
