Comments

We were very fortunate to see this bird. While our bus was driving along the entrance road at Yanacocha, someone noticed an unidentified bird in flight. When we stopped and got out, this rarely seen or photographed bird had gone to ground near the road. It held still for us while we got great looks and some photos.
