Many of the flycatchers are very plain looking birds and they give those of us that like to identify birds many challenges. Every now and then there is one that is easy to identify and has distinct easily recognizable field marks. The Sepia-capped Flycatcher is one of those birds.
While this is not the best photo, as it is very noisy, I really like it. We were walking back to our rooms after dinner and we talking about Ferruginous Pygmy-Owl that hangs out in the area near our rooms and then we spotted this little owl sitting on a chair outside of my room. This photo is taken at ISO of 12800. Right now this is my favorite little owl
We saw many tanagers on our trip. They are all beautiful birds, but to me this one is the most striking one we saw. I really like the elegance of this species. This is a Swallow Tanager.
This is another one of the ducks that we spent time watching and photographing. Now you may not be able to see the ring on its neck, as I understand, you can only see the ring when the duck is in your hand. I did hear a rumor that a name change may be coming for this duck and it may be Ring-billed Duck. Now that is a name that makes sense to me.
