Salento Day Two

Once more into the breach. I got up a bit later this morning and headed off down the track about 7am. There were a few different birds around today. But not a huge amount as what I was thinking. doh!

Bar-crested Antshrike
Bar-crested Antshrike (Thamnophilus multistriatus) BatarĂ¡ Carcajada

This was a good score. I had a good guess that it was something like an Antshrike.

Summer Tanager
Summer Tanager

I think this is right. Ebird says they are around here.

yellow-bellied siskin
yellow-bellied siskin (Spinus xanthogastrus)

I may have seen this one before but for the life of me I cannot work out what it is. Edit: It is a yellow-bellied siskin (Spinus xanthogastrus), thanks Mathew for the idenification.

lesser violetear
lesser violetear (Colibri cyanotus)

I thought it might have been a Green Violetear (Colibri thalassinus) but the Lesser Violetear has been seen in this area.

Western Emerald - female - maybe
Western Emerald (Chlorostilbon melanorhynchus) female

I am not sure about this id. It had a white chest and a blue crown.

Golden-faced Tyrannulet
Golden-faced Tyrannulet (Zimmerius chrysops)

More photos of these ones today. They seem quite common around here.

Scrub Tanager
Scrub Tanager (Tangara vitriolina) Tangara Rastrojera

Once again I think this is right. It might be a Conopophaga castaneiceps at a rough guess.

Slate-throated Redstart
Slate-throated Redstart (Myioborus miniatus)

Black-billed Thrush
Black-billed Thrush (Turdus ignobilis)
