Panama Birds and Wildlife Photos' Blog grows

On our last post we showed some photos we made at Panama Viejo but truth is that we started the day in the rainforest, specifically the Pipeline Road, where we had interesting opportunities disregarding we missed photographing our main target (Streak-chested Antpitta).

The day was not great but at least we made several pictures, and we were able to practice our long lenses techniques with species we have featured previously on this blog. In our search we were able to hear our target but never saw it. We also saw Ocellated Antbirds but were not able to photograph them. 

Finally, we have good news: we are growing, and now we have officially added Julio Abdiel Gonzalez to our photographers roster. Julio Abdiel has being collaborating with us from time time but now he will be featured more often. Without further ado we now move to the photos:
