Early morning in the Ecuadorian Cloud forest, near Mindo. A short hike uphill to the lek of the Andean Cock-of-the-rock, one of the most famous birds of the Andes.

After waiting for a little while, we hear the loud calls of the males. Unmistakable! To see them is much harder. And to photography them is challenge, especially when there’s almost no light.

But what a unique bird!
