Immaculate Antbird, female

Thanks to the light kept on 24-7 in front of the blind there were moths attracted, unwisely they lingered when dawn arrived. Unwisely, since with dawn two pairs of Immaculate Antbirds (amongst others) also arrived to feast upon them. Here's a close-up on a female caught with plenty of evidence stuck to her bill!


Tandayapa Bird Lodge, western slope of northern Ecuador, Aug 2005.


Of course this is a given for my newly developed "Portraits"-set! Posted big
