Day 16; Sumaco back to Quito

First thing in the morning at a blind near the lodge, then a long journey back to Quito, we were supposed to stop at altitude and search for birds but it was raining and cold, so we continued on and spent most of the afternoon at Hacienda Jiminita.

Western Fire-eye, this female shows how they got their name. The header image is a male of the same species.
