We saw several species of brush-finch on this trip. These towhee like sparrows tend to skulk in the thickets, but the feeders were too much for this White-winged Brush-finch.
We'd enjoyed portrait looks of Flame-faced and Golden-naped Tanager the day before, but who would refuse even closer looks?
I had expected based on eBird bargraphs for Blue-winged Mountian-tanager to be a very common bird on this trip; I think we only saw them a couple times. But they saved the best looks for last.
Finally, if brush-finches are skulkers, they're nothing to compared to spinetails. This Azara's Spinetail was lurking about in the thicket beneath the balcony and I just caught it as it raced through a little opening, definitely my clearest pic of any species of spinetail
