Even though the Amazonian Antshrike (Thamnophilus amazonicus) is a common bird of Kabalebo, they still succeed in making you put a lot of effort to just see them. Hearing them calling is the easy part. The challenge starts when you want to really photograph them. Somehow they have a talent to go to spots where either the light is not on your side or where a bunch of leaves is standing in the way. Here is one sample of it. Here you see the female Amazonian Antshrike that just caught an insect. I only had a split second to photograph her. Resulting in not a perfect photo but since it was my first photo of this Antshrike I am not complaining, since I am a birder in the first place.
