  1. Even among a family of gifted songsters, this species has a particularly remarkable voice, and in Brazil it is the cultural equivalent of the European Nightingale.

    1. Such a calm and beautiful song. Posted 7 days ago
  2. Incredible. Cyphorhinus are the best.

    I saw my only individual of this bird near Mitú and that little beast did NOT want to pose.

        1. I remember! My nemesis now is Chestnut-breasted. I've encountered that one multiple times and had it singing (and responding to playback) within a meter or two, but I've never seen more than a shadow moving in dense undergrowth! Posted 6 days ago
