Maranon Tit-Tyrant was another endemic and a snappy one at that. We also picked up a Thick-billed Siskin, Giant Conebill (within 20 feet of us!), Brown-flanked Tanager (a hard to find endemic), 4 Rufous-backed Inca-Finches (another endemic), Black-throated Flower-piercers, and Golden-billed Saltator. Day 8 - Now the plot thickens. We traveled to Bosque Unchog today. This is a very difficult place to go to for some very hard to see species. More
