Peru day 17: Tarapoto > Río Shilcayo

Looking for female Oleria along the Río Shilcayo today. Good views of a pair of White-flanked Antwrens low in some dark, shady understorey. Back in the garden in Tarapoto I added Purple-throated Euphonia, Violet-fronted Brilliant, and Southern Beardless-Tyrannulet to the list. Half-a-dozen noisy Canary-winged Parakeets dropped in an hour before the six-o-clock Cicada was to deafen all other life and add to the edge of town ambience of dogs, chickens and mototaxis.
