  1. Endless diversity in Peru! so beautiful! Posted 2 years ago
    1. I feel a bit bad, though, as I'm presenting a very biased sample of Peru's natural riches! It's just that I don't like to upload photos to JD without having the full names for them, and birds are the only thing I can reliably identify. Posted 2 years ago
      1. If you don't have time to upload the non-birds, totally understand that. But if you're not uploading because you don't know the ID, I must protest :)

        The photo without ID is in any case valuable. And others can help and try to bring it at least to genus, for example. Plus, when properly describing it, it will still be found in search, so these photos do have value.

        1. Sure, but since I have more than enough fully identified photos to upload still, I much prefer for those to be my contributions. What can I say, it's the French perfectionnist in me! Posted 2 years ago
          1. That is fine, and thank you for all your awesome contributions. Posted 2 years ago

  4. Today's Facebook post:

    This stunning beauty is a male black-faced Dacnis (Dacnis lineata). It’s a Neotropical tanager that lives in the lowlands across northern South America. They exhibit extreme sexual dimorphism as the male is mostly vibrant blue, while the female has dull dark gray/olive plumage. {Spotted in Peru by Thibaud Aronson} #JungleDragon #Dacnislineata #Blackfaceddacnis

The black-faced dacnis is a species of bird in the family Thraupidae. It is found in humid forest in the Amazon and the Chocó-Magdalena. The latter population has a yellow belly and is sometimes considered a separate species, the yellow-tufted dacnis.
