Seriously.. small scope - something like a straight through Bushnell spacemaster or a Nikon fieldscope 60mm with no more than a 20x wide angle lens on a shoulder pod and you can't go wrong. Not used one in a rain forest.. but I do use that set up to ID high flying migrants which has to be as difficult!

You can track flying swifts without a problem and its as fast as bins!

I'm almost never without mine - hence the state of it! - Nearly as bad as my shoes :)
