Thank you very much, Shalu.

You have to be getting fairly close to those 2 juveniles in order to be getting such amazing shots, Shalu. This one is so outstanding. The pose is simply over the top. Are you able to get very close to the adults?

Thank you very much, Mike! Yes, they can be pretty close as their nest sites are on cliffs right next to the trail. Even adults can be perched near the trail.

Very beautiful, but unusual and interesting looking birds, KDA. Nice job of photographing them.

Yes indeed Mike, there are many strange birds in Ecuador.
