This Thicket Antpitta is from Lands in Love. As far as I have seen, this site is one of two easily accessible sites where this species can be quite reliably seen instead of just heard. The other site is Arenal Observatory Lodge. There are other places too but the bird is much more difficult to see.

What a great find for you Patrick. This is the first photo to come in for this species.

I'll add your lovely picture to the Opus article - many thanks.

Outstanding Patrick! I along with many others are quite familiar with its call and picture in the book but not a live view (lol). This species seems especially difficult, even for an Antpitta. Fantastic work and TFS!!!!!!!

Smile, be safe, be kind, do good work, and prosper!
