Manakins and more

One of the birds I was looking forward to seeing in the dry forest was the Long-tailed manakin!  These were amazing little birds.  Lek visits early morning proved my best views of this species, as males gathered to display over a nearby female.  Upto six males was my highest count together.


These birds proved hard to photograph as were many other species in the forest.  Here is a selection of some more.
