The Sunbittern (Eurypyga helias) is a common bird in Kabalebo seen near the river. But due to its camouflage plumage it might happen that you miss this bird a couple of times. Especially when they are standing in an environment just like this one.
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.
This one was a lifer for me; the Fasciated Tiger-Heron (Tigrisoma fasciatum) especially when I was also able to photograph it. I did have to put in some effort, because he was standing continuously behind the rocks. After several attempts and dozens of shots, I managed to take a decent one.
