Animals of the week! - 2016 #3
Somehow I am always looking forward to see who is likely to cross my path. Big or small, they are all welcome to pose in front of my camera.
January 9 - 14, 2016:
This Black Curassow was seen early in the morning at the River Cabin. He was not alone, but his travel companion was too shy to pose in front of my camera.
The Reddish Hermit paid once again a quick visit on the Fajalobi plant (Jungle flames).
Sometimes you have to look through some 'holes' in the dense vegetation. This Greater Yellow-headed vulture was seen resting and wasn't bothered at all by my presence.
Hello again! Once again this female Green-tailed Jacamar was spotted at the river cabin. A little bit shy too as she flew immediately in the dense vegetation for cover.
Did I caught her in the act? I am not sure, but on the airstrip I met this Red brocket deer while she was enjoying her meal.
I met this Laughing Falcon also on the airstrip. Most of the time you can hear him 'laughing', today he decided to be visible.
It is like I said, sometimes you do need to look through some 'holes'. Here I spotted one of the Red Howler Monkeys who was at that moment chewing on some leaves.
The Brown Capuchin Monkey was having a blast on the fruits of the Inga tree. They were seen in a small group all too busy trying to eat as much as possible.
On almost ground level I spotted something small hopping intensively between the leaves. With a little patient I was able to identify the mysterious hopper: a Yellow-crowned Tyrannulet with a small caterpillar … lunchtime.
I spotted another small fellow who was investigating the bark of different trees: the Wedge-billed wood creeper, the smallest wood creeper of Kabalebo.
And at the lodge we were greeted by this fellow: the Bicoloured Hawk. He was once again terrorizing the small birds. Here he took a break while thinking about his next plan.
