Ornate Flycatcher

The ornate flycatcher has a fairly limited distribution in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. 
Ornate flycatcher range from Wikipedia. 
It has a gray head with black eyes, a short black beak and white "headlights," that is, white spots between the eyes and the beak. It has yellow underparts and a yellow rump, with moss-green back, and light moss-green mingling with yellow on the chest. The tail is brown or rufous, tending to be rusty on east-slope birds and brown on west-slope birds. 

I saw three of them at Mashpi Amagusa Reserve in Ecuador. eBird notes 19,136 observations and 964 photos.

  1. It is amazing that the distribution is so small. Apparently they don't migrate and they must not need to travel much. How lucky you were to see three!
