Streak-headed Woodcreeper (Lepidocolaptes souleyetii)

The Woodcreeper family of birds is one extremely difficult to photograph. They normally are found in dense forest, which is dark, making it a technical challenge to find a fast-enough shutter speed. Their plumage normally match somehow the trees’ cortex, camouflaging them well, so even spotting them in the first place is tough. And on top of that, they won’t stay still for more than one second, meaning that the moment the lens/camera focused, it moved out of position.

The following picture was taken in Fincas Bambuzal, Rio Frio on April 15th, 2017.
