Owls with anteojos...ECUADOR 5 Feb. '11

We had a great day wandering among the giant ceiba trees in Jorupe reserve, just a couple of kms from Peru. Tumbesian birds abounded like Henna-hooded and Rufous-necked Foliage-gleaners, Slaty Becard, and the awesome White-tailed Jay. However, I think the group were most impressed with this fierce individual that we awoke at a day roost, a superb Spectacled Owl.

More to come from down south soon...
