A Golden-breasted Fruiteater was less than cooperative but while we chased it, we picked up Montane Woodcreeper, Lineated Foliage gleaner, Scarlet-fronted Parakeet, Streak-necked Flycatcher, Blue-capped Tanager, Stripe-headed Brush Finch, and Masked Trogon. During dinner, we enjoyed the antics of a Crab-eating Fox coming to scavenge the scraps under the lodge bird feeders. Santa Marta Antpitta. Photo by Steve Bird. More
