Tandayapa Trogon ECUADOR (Jan. '11)

There was more than just stacks of colorful hummers and technicolor tanagers during my visit to Tandayapa Lodge, as this tame trogon was there too. One of a resident pair of Masked Trogons that regularly hawks insects immediately around the lodge, this brown-backed bird is a female (the male's back is green). As usual she was quite approachable, and continued to grab bugs mid-air right in front of me.

Next up was another visit to the "antpitta farm", Paz de Aves refuge near Mindo in NW Ecuador...
