Black-throated Mango (Anthracothorax nigricollis)

The nest is perfectly camouflaged against the branch, and the green back of the tiny black-throated mango (Anthracothorax nigricollis) could easily be mistaken for one of the countless leaves on this tree. Unless you have a lot of time on your hands to observe that is. Like eco tourists sitting on their wonderful porch outside their huge Napo Wildlife Center Cabana!

It was one of the guests that made the residents aware of this nest, so sometimes the visitors do see something missed by the locals….
