Dot-backed Antbird

 I honestly hoped that we would see more antbirds in Amazonian Ecuador.  Dot-backed Antbird was a nice exception.  We heard it making an alien little buzz and I asked the guide what it was...  

The bird popped up with a little bit of playback.  It was SUPER dark (and backlit), so these pics are lightened a bunch, but turned out well all things considered.  The bird's a mouse, super tiny, no tail, and really like just about nothing else I've ever encountered.
