Tanagers Vs. Barbets: ECUADOR

Spent the last few days around Tandayapa Bird Lodge, that is rightly famous for hummingbirds, arguably being the best hummingbird lodge on earth. However, there is a lot else besides, and right now the fruit feeders are on fire, bringing in regular tanagers and barbets battling it out for a place at the papayas and bananas. Here is a shot of both male (top) and female (bottom) Red-headed Barbets from there.

I'd forgotten what great birds these are! Takes me back to the male I saw at Tandayapa in 2006.
