Description

A terrible photo of a Sunbittern, which was one of our favorite birds of the morning on our 3rd day in Manu.
The third day began with a trip to a clay lick along the Alto Madre de Dios, where parrots come to scrape minerals off the river bank. That was cool, but I didn't get any photos because we were so far away from it (on a sanbar in the river).
Our second stop was at an overgrown oxbow lake, which we had to walk about a mile to get to. This beautiful Sunbittern was seen along the way there.
