one year ago today

 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.

I don't know if it always forages on palms just covered with thorns (that might dissuade many other birds), but it seemed to favor them for us.

I think it's snagged a cricket here.
I honestly shudder to think about the creepy-crawlies it probes out of the dark recesses of the Amazon
