Black-backed Thornbill

Ramphomicron dorsale

 

El Dorado Lodge, Santa Marta Mountains, Magdalena department, Colombia.

 

Male. One of the most rarely encountered of the Santa Marta endemics. It took me many visits to finally see one. This subadult male was frequently visiting the feeders at the lodge in late January and early February 2011. It may be more common in other, less accessible parts of the mountain range.
