Spotted Antbird, Male, Calling

Hit Planation Road early, intent on finding some antbirds on army ant swarms.

Found them–6 looong uphill kilometers in. WHAT a swarm. Huge. Tons of birds. And I  kid you not, ten minutes after I found it the sky opened up on me yet again. Buckets.

But!!! Fear not. I had acquired a magnificent umbrella at the Gamboa Rainforest Resort. They normally don’t sell them, but after my mewling and begging, they relented and sold me a magnificent and glorios and HUGE umbrella.(Usually only used as ‘house’ umbrellas)

So, out comes my new umbrella, and I just hang out nice and dry and wait for it to pass.

So here’s a Spotted Antbird from today. Little guys, they are quite the handsome little birds. This is a male.
