Rufous-tailed Jacamars! This was a life bird for both of us- I think we ended up seeing 5 total? These photos are from three different birds in the same day. We got some awesome looks at them and even got to see some courtship behavior. I got the picture of the male feeding the female just in time; they separated right afterwards.
I'm pleased with the way most of these came out. They ended up being a lot sharper than I expected them to be. All the birds were pretty high up on branches so I was shooting straight up a lot. I raised the monopod as high as it would go and hoped for the best. There was actually a jacamar about 4 inches off the ground at one point but it flushed really quickly.
Anyway, I love these birds! They're an insects worse nightmare though. We watched them catch and eat a few bugs before they disappeared. Glad they let us hang out with them for a few minutes!
