Day 2 of 15-day birding adventure

Arose this morning at 6:00 am for breakfast. Then proceeded outside to observe the morning visitors to the lodge area. We were greeted by a variety of early risers such as Masked Trogon, Russet-backed Orependolo, along with numerous tanagers and hummingbirds. After visiting the feeding stations to view the White-bellied and Chestnut-crowned Antpittas, we walked the Antvireo trail to see what the forest offered. Undaunted by some showers we were able to spot Speckled-faced Parrots and Emerald Toucanets. In the evening we successfully tracked down an Andean Potoo befor calling it a day. Our total bird count for two days now stands at 100 species. Tomorrow, after a period of biding we will head to Wildsumaco for a three day visit.
