Thanks!!!!
In Bolivia is extremely common in some specific places and very rare in others that seems similar in habitat. Not sure how this birds choose a favourite place to live.

Thanks for sharing! Actually it is quite rare and hard to find in BC, Canada. I am not sure how it is doing in the rest of Canada.
