Bare-crowned Antbird

Deep in the rain forest

Viewed 21 Times

This bird, a Bare-crowned Antbird, is the ultimate skulker. Lives deep in the rain forests of Central America, and although it can fly, it usually is seen on or near the ground. This shot was taken from a boat in Costa Rica. The boatman, a master guide named Chambita, heard the bird calling and steered the boat through the root filled canal and found him. He sat for a short time and allowed us to take multiple shots. Unfortunately the right side of the image was severely backlit with light coming through the branches. The image has been cropped from the R and bottom. A number of bright spots were partially cloned to reduce their brightness. Otherwise, BG slightly brought down and blurred.
