This Andean species ranges from Colombia to Bolivia and inhabits Montane and High Andean forest between ~6,600 feet and 11,500 feet (2,000 to 3,500 meters). These guys usually slink around the understory, but this cooperative representative emerged from the shadows when it visited a feeding station at Hacienda El Bosque at 10,000 feet outside Manizales. I'd only heard this species prior to this encounter, so it was great to finally have a clear view of this shy but beautiful bird. Antpittas forage with bouts of hopping/running punctuated by surveillance pauses, and a lack of light in their preferred habitat suggested I surrender action shots in favor of stationary captures. I would have loved to have more depth-of-field across the bird, particularly on the legs, but I didn't have the light for it. I did clone out one small distracting specular highlight in the upper right corner of the frame, well away from the subject.
