In my opinion this is a mean looking bird. :) It seems like they don´t eat ants but follow the army ants and prey of what they flush out of hiding. They live on the Caribean side of CR.

About  Fasciated Antshrike on Avainweb, there are some shots but not much info about it. :(

  1. Great shot of the Antshrike but I think I would stand back a bit ;-)

  2. Great photo and it certainly has a most determined look!


I love comments so please write something. I usually responds to everyone on their own blogs. But nowadays I often find it impossible to comment on many blogs or on Google+. Often the word verifications is unreadable. And after three times I give up. Other times the systems seems to think I am a spammer. Lots of bloggers loose comments that way. :( So, if you don´t see me comment on your blog that is the reason.
