Rufous Hornero

Rufous Hornero

The Kitchen staff put a mound of white rice on an outdoor table and the birds came in and ate every grain. My co-travellers were off in the heat looking for exotic birds. We were at this particular pousada because it was near a Harpy Eagle nest. This was one of the reasons I went on this trip. Sadly the eagles lost their young and had left the nest. They will mate again, in three years and come back to the same nest. I felt my skills at small bird photography were very limited and the heat really overwhelmed me. I took the afternoon to stay at the lodge and see what I could see.
