This guy was very high on my wish list for Bolivia. A near endemic and an absolutely stunning species of the cloud forests. I got lucky one morning and had a pair feeding along side the "caraterra de la muerte" (road of death). Nobody really drives on that road anymore (except for crazy Canadian birdwatchers) so it is amazing for birding. I spent a solid 3 days searching the area for all kinds of goodies. But this guy was the highlight. What a beauty!
