Rufous-fronted Wood-Quail, Odontophorus erythrops


Rufous-fronted Wood-Quail
This was one of a small flock of these attractive but elusive and hard-to-see quail: "typically encountered only by chance," say Ridgely and Greenfield, but in this case, regular feeding by our host raised our odds to better than chance. This photo was taken in very low light in late afternoon, a challenge to the equipment. (For photographers: 1/25 sec, f/4, ISO 6400.)
