Restricted to isolated high Andean pockets in Colombia and Ecuador, the diminutive (4.5 inches, 11.5 centimeters) Crescent-faced Antpitta is one of the most reclusive Grallaria family members. This individual revealed itself at an established feeding station at Hacienda El Bosque at 10,000 feet in Colombia's Central Andes. There wasn't much ambient light and it took a bit of time to find an appropriate shooting window, so I was happy to get a sharp shot without too much distracting or obscuring vegetation. The crop is a bit tight, but that's all the clear space my very limited window allowed.
