Remarks :While leaving Lava, I decided to walk down the road as the others got ready, and at the garbage dump in Lava I had a fleeting glimpse of a bluish robin-like bird. As I searched for it, it flew out across the road, and only gave me a fraction of a second to click before disappearing again. Here's the record shot. - GB
