Colombia – Birds

The birds I have added here represent about 25% of the birds I captured and possibly 15% of the birds Rich and I saw on our trip to Colombia.  The selection is pretty much a random selection from the places we went and of the types of birds we saw.  Most frequently we saw Hummingbirds, Tanagers and Flycatchers.  But also represented here are a few raptors, some little ground birds like the Antpittas and a Manakin and big funny birds like the Chachalaca and Oropendola.  We loved the long hyphenated names almost as much as the birds themselves.  I hope you like the photos as much as I did taking them. If I mis-named some I apologise and welcome corrections.
