  1. A nice Colombian endemic, usually tricky, but very very easy at Rio Blanco. This one, Sofia, ate the worms out of my guide's hands! Posted 2 months ago

    1. Yup, this fellow, Albeiro has been doing daily rounds for years, putting out worms for the antpittas. There are several other species that occur at Rio Blanco, but he's got one or two individuals of 4 different species that are now completely accustomed to him (and the birders he brings along) and come out to eat the worms!!

      1. Wow! Have you ever hiked Mount Katahdin in Maine? There are doves there that are so used to people that they will hop right up and sit in your lap. It took me by surprise the first time I experienced it! Posted 2 months ago, modified 2 months ago
        1. No, I've never been there, but now I want to!! Posted 2 months ago
