They are a very wagish Kind of Monkey, and played a thousand antick Tricks as we marched at any Time through the Woods, skipping from Bough to Bough, with the young one’s hanging at the old one’s Back, making Faces at us, [and] chattering. (Wafer 1729, 330) In 1966, the best source of information about seasonal variation in the lives of Panamanian mammals came from the studies of Robert K. Enders, a long-time professor of biology at Swarthmore College. Early in his career Enders had studied the reproductive biology and embryology of Robinson’s mouse opossum.

Some birds, such as the oropendolas, called linguas (tongues) in Panama, made sounds I had never heard before. The mournful whistles of tinamous were common in the late afternoon. The strangest sounds, however, came from manakins, small fruit-eating birds that feed in the forest understory. The first time I heard the loud cr-r-r-r-r-ack followed by intermittent short cracks produced by the wings of males, I could not guess what was making that sound. I finally discovered that male manakins produce these sounds before flying rapidly just above the ground between small trees that served as their display perches.

S. society, especially on university campuses, during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Now that my collecting duties were over, I had to make serious plans for my year-long study of seasonality in populations of tropical mammals. I needed to choose my study sites and find permanent living quarters for Marcia and me. Marcia’s second semester of graduate courses in mathematics was nearly over, and she was scheduled to arrive in Panama at the end of April. The two collecting trips had been a great introduction to tropical diversity and the cultures of Panama, and I had finally realized a long-held dream of capturing animals in an exotic land.
