Brown-backed Chat-tyrant is a small flycatcher of the last thickets. This one ventured all the way out to the ground.
Followed perhaps by Stout-billed Cinclodes. I don't know where the finch nests, but the cinclodes excavates burrows.
Equadorian Hillstar is still a bird I would like a better look at. Most of the birds I've encountered have been fairly distant females. Here an immature male interacted with a female up the slope. Full adult males have purple heads.
Another high-elevation hummer is Black-tailed Trainbearer, though it seemed to prefer areas where there was at least some brushiness.
Same for Blackish Flowerpiercer.
Finally a look at some giant dock-looking weed. The seed head was probably 2 feet tall and the entire thing 6 inches across. It'd be the stuff Downy Woodpecker dreams are made of.
