Our last morning in the Amazon brought a wealth of fish hunters. Ringed Kingfisher was the most widely distributed bird of this group, but one that I don't have a ton of pictures of. They're the biggest kingfisher I've encountered, I'm not sure if there are bigger ones in the Old World, but to my knowledge they're the biggest in the New World.

was the last full day in Ecuador, and the morning paddle quickly turned up one of the birds of the trip for me, Long-billed Woodcreeper! It was definitely the best bird I spotted on the trip.

With the heat of the late afternoon scorching we spent a bit of time on a river island in the wide Sani River. There was a lot of sand and little shade. It felt like a desert.
