Scrub Blackbird

The scrub blackbird is found only in Ecuador, Peru and far southwestern Colombia. It is all black and can have a light bluish-sheen in bright light. It has a longer bill and less iridescent feathers than the similar shiny cowbird which has a much more extensive range in South America. I only saw one or two at Las Terrazas de Dana, the lodge we stayed at in Mindo, Ecuador. 
If you look closely you can see the light bluish-sheen on the feathers.
