COLOMBIA December 2009

From Dec 06 to 19, 2009, Sheridan Coffey and myself birded the eastern Andes, north coast, and Santa Marta Mtns of Colombia (for the first leg in the Andes, Dan Peak joined us) using Medellin-based birding guide Pablo Flores Valencia click here to email Pablo.

Thick-billed Seed-Finch Oryzoborus funereus ochrogyne: above Minca. Discussions about the specific/subspecific status of this taxon vis-a-vi angolensis often quote "intermediates near Santa Marta" - so I thought I'd post these images of an all-black individual singing from forest above Minca. Also note the rather pale mandible - something I've seen on one photo of this taxon from the same general area...? :
