However, there was one big surprise. A Uruguayan conceptual artist, Luis Camnitzer, had an exhibition there in which he "responded" to the works in the various galleries that had been organized around themes, such as portraits, or couples. Some of his responses were actually fairly witty. The one that hit home was in the center gallery. When I saw it, I was momentarily disoriented.

On the way to Ponce the highway hugs the shore and looking up I saw our first Magnificent Frigatebird floating motionlessly above the road. We'd get much better looks at this species in a couple of days.
On the grounds of the museum grackles were all about, naturally, but there were also our first Common Ground Doves scampering around the courtyard.
As we were driving back to the Copamarina on 333 we flushed a dove in the road. My first reaction was white-winged, but upon looking it up in the guide book and finding the the trailing white on the wings, I realized that we'd seen our first (and as it turns out, only) Zenaida Dove of the trip.
