How often do you see two species of Potoo in two days?!
This bird was roosting in a tree along the road between the towns of Pilcopata and Atalaya, well into the foothills.

Leach's Storm-Petrel Oceanodroma leucorhoa

Description

This is the most difficult ID of all. The Leach's in this part of the world are all dark-rumped; given that we were surrounded with Least and Black Storm-Petrels all day, the ID doesn't get any easier.

Advice and help appreciated.

Extant birds belong to the subclass Neornithes, living worldwide and ranging in size from the 5 cm (2 in) Bee Hummingbird to the 2.75 m (9 ft) Ostrich. The fossil record indicates that birds emerged within the theropod dinosaurs during the Jurassic period, around 150 million years ago. Birds are the only living...
