From all the owls that I've seen in Kabalebo, the Tawny-bellied Screech Owl is the silent one. All the other owls I've heard calling but this one never gave a sound. But on the other hand they are territorial and have a certain spot where they hide and rest during the day. The first hide out wasn't a great pick as there is a tree nearby where guides and tourists were hitting a telephone tree just for the sound. This of course made sure that this Screech Owl went looking for a different hide out and found one, not very far from its original spot.
But since it is a smart bird, this time it pick a tree that is not right next to the trail and you have got to know which tree you have to look at.
The Lemon-chested Greenlet is a common bird of Kabalebo, but somehow I missed this small bird all these years. I think because it is a tiny and agile one and likes to move quickly between the green foliage before disappearing into the bushes. When the light is bad, you can barely see this small bird but when the sun is up, it is one remarkable bird. This time I caught it upside down.
I had fun with this bird. It didn't call at all but was moving between the leaves and sticks. Suddenly it was just standing on this short stick before moving again. The Buff-breasted Wren is the most common wren in Kabalebo, but one that likes to be heard rather than been seen.
Two young Crimson Topazes perched on a small branch. Both still lacking the two extended tail feathers. One still developing some facial feathers. When the sun wasn't fully exposed it even looked like they had dark and brown colors, which is an illusion. First time too that I've seen two young males sitting together.
