Here you can see a Yellow-bellied Seedeater (Sporophila nigricollis) resting on a Soursop branch. This seedeater and his large family will keep us company in Kabalebo for the next six months.
This is the Harpy Eagle soaring above me while I was sitting in a boat. The Harpy Eagle is the most powerful bird of prey in the world. With a wingspan of 2 meters this surely symbolizes the wings of freedom.
The Golden-handed Tamarin (Saguinus midas) is a common monkey often seen foraging in Kabalebo. It is also one of the most difficult ones to photograph due to its size and urge to keep on moving.
This adorable little fellow is called the Wedge-billed Woodcreeper (Glyphorynchus spirurus). A mouth full for such a little bird. This is also the tiniest wood creeper I have seen so far in Kabalebo.
The Painted Parakeet (Pyrrhura picta) is the smallest of the Parrot family (22 cm). A common bird but due to its size and secretive behavior, also one of the most difficult to photograph.
The first time that I saw the Crested Owl (Lophostrix cristata) in Kabalebo was in 2013. Two years later I finally managed to take a picture of him. Worth waiting for!
Here is another great example of nature at its best: the Suriname Horned frog well-camouflaged between the dry leaves.
