Endemic Tapaculos of Chile

Before heading to Chile this page in the field guide was the one that had me captivated. These strange endemic giant Tapaculos were the birds I wanted to photograph most on my trip.

What can I say...Clean sweep!!!!

Black-throated Huet Huet

Chestnut-throated Huet Huet

Glenn - fantastic job! I do not know how much of them you have seen (as a number of individuals) and how shy they are. The bottom line is you got what you were chasing there!
Thanks for sharing - very educational, I honestly didn'y know they exist at all (and they are beautiful!!!)!
