Peru: Barred Antshrike

Perhaps the most conspicuous of the antbirds. This is my homage to "The Neotropical Companion" by John Kricher. This is must reading for any one interested in the natural history of the neotropics. I religiously read the original 1st edition paperback version before my first trip to Peru and much of it is still ingrained in my brain. It has since been revised and reprinted and whose cover (see comment below) inspired this shot. Tambopata, Peru, Aug 2015.
