As I sat within a very few metres of this extraordinary bird, I could scarcely believe what I was seeing.
|Black-chinned Mountain Tanager Anisognathus notabilis (above),|
and Sickle-winged Guan Chamaepetes goudotii (below),
both succumbing to the lure of Angel's bananas.
|White-faced Nunbird Hapaloptila castanea, a very rarely encountered bird and this is the only one I've seen|
|Orange-breasted Fruit-eater Pipreola jucunda, a delightful little cotinga.|
