New high altitude trail!

Just back from a days birding with a private group to a new high altitude trail, very encouraging with plenty of great birds and a very easy walk down having driven up to around 1650m in altitude. Highlights from today included Hooded Berryeater (amazingly close!), Mouse-coloured Tapaculo, Diademed Tanager, Rufous-tailed Antbird, Black-billed Scythebill, Serra do Mar Tyrannulet, Rufous-capped Spinetail, Black and Gold Cotinga, Sharp-tailed Streamcreeper and Bay-chested Warbling Finch.
