Rare for me anyway. This was one I've been trying to find for 4 years. Caught this little guy (gal?), last week. Only about 6" high, and hard as heck to see. I was plain lucky. I was able to get 2 angles. There was a viewing platform that I was able to maneuver between branches to get a somewhat clear shot, and then from a path below, where it was less obstructed. Probably won't see one for another 4 or 5 years now...cheers..Don

From a lower path.

Nice series of a hard to get bird. I only recall one other posted in the last couple of years.

Thanks penolta. Yes, they are hard to find. I've seen a lot of people the last couple of weeks trying to get a glimpse of one, and they're not having much luck. I was very lucky...cheers..Don
