This capture 📷 of this bird 🐥 is so very special for me. We heard this bird along the trail on Pipeline Road and began our journey inside the thick forest 🌳 this was on our 2nd day. My photos weren’t horrible but there was a branch blocking every shot. To say the least I was disappointed but not discouraged. After leaving El Valle in the 4th day, I talked my friend into going back and waiting for this bird to come again. This was the outcome 🙌 The longest legs in the forest 😂 on this jewel 💎 of a bird ..... The Streak-chested Antpitta. Shot taken on Pipeline Road in Gamboa, Panama 🇵🇦
Behold, one of the Empid flycatchers! These birds can be challenging to identify because there are subtle differences between some species. It took some discussion between several birders, myself included, to reach a consensus on the species. And even then WE WERE WRONG! We were corrected later on when we ran into another experienced birder 😤
