A new member on my bird list: the Spotted tody-flycatcher (Todirostrum maculatum)
The exact date that I saw this bird for the first time was on September 10, 2015. I wasn't expecting to add another member on my bird list, but it happened. While I was observing and photographing a pair of Black-tailed Tityra's busy making a nest in a coconut tree, this little fellow just happened to introduce himself to me.
A small active bird (10 cm), so it took a while before I managed to take some clear shots of him. This memorable moment lasted only 3 minutes.
Unlike the Common tody-flycatcher, the Spotted tody-flycatcher is less frequently seen. Overall it likes shady trees. The Spotted tody-flycatcher is a small flycatcher, so it likes to look for insects under the leaves.
Of course I am hoping that we'll meet each other as often as possible.
