Amazon Tour (Sacha Lodge, Ecuador): March 2010


Well, I did briefly mention our encounter with a brace of cool manakins one morning in Sacha, when first a male Golden-headed Manakin appeared right where we were expecting to find a Blue-crowned Manakin (not to worry though, we caught up with this one on another day), then later we tracked down this calling male WIRE-TAILED MANAKIN (photo and video). A morning with these two Crested Owls and this breathtaking manakin is quite enough for anyone I feel!

Frogs, monkeys and other bird updates to come from Sacha...
