As we were walking down the road our guide Jay stopped an pointed out a bird moving about on the leaves of an overhanging tree.  The branches looked like ferns with small leaves growing closely together.  The bird was laying atop of the leaves and shaking about – it was taking a bath!  The Red-billed Streamertail spread its wings and tail, settled on the dew-covered leaves and fluttered on the leaves to wet itself.  From our vantage point below we were only able to see the silhouette of the bird but as we moved up the path and looked back we were able to see the Streamertail taking is bath.  If you look carefully you can see the dew droplets flying around the body.
