We stopped on our way to the national park to take another crack at Orange-billed Nightengale-thrush, a bird we'd tried for the evening before (in the rain). It didn't take long to spot this attractive species. Later in the day we saw Slaty-backed Nightengale-thrush as well.
There's a lot of birds that occur just in the upper-mid elevations which would potentially be new and despite the rain (which continued all day), I got more lifers on this day than any other (about 13 out of a total of 30 for the week). The rain made it hard to get pics without risking equipment and I mostly kept the camera under the raincoat unless there was something pretty exciting. Prong-billed Barbet was my first barbet of any kind.
There's a whole mess of different furnarids, variously shaped generally small to medium sized brownish insectivores for which we have no real reference point for in the U.S. This is a Red-faced Spinetail.
Scaly-throated Foliage-gleaner is another member of this group. Despite having seen 4 or 5 foliage-gleaners at this point I've never gotten a really good pic at any member of this hyperactive tribe.
Spotted Barbtail is a bird that the book lists as a furnarid.
It acted (and looked) a lot more like a Woodcreeper. I was able to identify it a couple times, other times it confused me.
Here's the (soaked) male.
