Domi knew where there was a nesting pair though.
A female Blue Cotinga appeared in the next tree.
Not much farther down the trail Domi located a Gray-cheeked Nunlet, a similarly range-restricted bird.
We walked on, finding a pair of Crimson-crested Woodpeckers.
As we got into some deeper forest Royal Flycatcher appeared.
We found our 2nd jacamar of the day, the much more widespread Rufous-tailed
A nemesis of mine fell. White-bellied Antbird was seen on last year's trip a couple of times by at least some participants. They were commonly heard calling through this trip and I'd glimpsed one in pre-dawn gloom on the 2nd day of the trip. This was my first daytime look.
And speaking of leaves, this female Black Antshrike was completely blocked by a leaf.
Finally our best look at one of a few Orange-crowned Orioles we had.
