Tawny Antpitta, Grallaria quitensis


Tawny Antpitta
Most antpittas are hard to see, but not this one; Ridgely and Greenfield, in their
authoritative The Birds of Ecuador write "No other Ecuadorian antpitta ever emerges
from forest depths the way this species so habitually does." This Tawny Antpitta
came out to sing near the feeding station at the entrance to Yanacocha Reserve,
a good spot for them.
