What a lifer! Our Ecuador tour is on fire. This Andean Cock-of-the-rock was a long dream of mine and in a hide in Ecuador, we got amazing views of several males displaying. I'll have more time to post photos from now on. Crazy good birds, including mother feeds young Harpy eagle 😍 Follow me on instagram @birddetective #lifeisshortbirdit

Hi Emin,

This is the first time that I am seeing such a cute and lovely bird but without a beak, or is it hidden? But the details and the color are simply gorgeous.

Thanks for sharing the lovely species.

Warm Regards,

Hello Emin,
Very nice photo of this Cock-on-the-rock. Beautiful colours and good sharpness. A pity that the details are lost in the blacks. Fine DOF and composition.
